Sensitive Blood-Drinkers, Sexy Bad-Boys and Gallant Scottish Noblemen... or NOT

Books you've read that are NOT about Vampires or Romance/Erotica/Fantasy. Most of the lists on this site that attest to the popularity of these genres. You may have even voted on them. LOTS of times.
Just make a list of something else this time. I don't care if its a recipe book, an Ikea manual,a manifesto, a blog, a self-help book, how-tos,fiction or non-fiction, biography, or history, periodical or novel.
What else have you read that really uplifts or moves you? Add to my list and let your other enthusiasms see the light of day.

Liane I got incredibly carried away here LOL. I'm with you Gabrielle, not really into the Vampire kind of books. I do have some, but not too many I'm happy to say. Well, not as many as most people on the site, I'm sure!!


message 2: by Gabrielle (new)

Gabrielle No problem, that's exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to show that people here have broad interests!


message 3: by Smiley (last edited Oct 31, 2009 01:39AM) (new)

Smiley The first two books I voted are the ones I have read and admired, that is, Nos. 35 & 38 (from your list). I also selected from my books totaling 100 and asked a few friends to vote for me.

Oh I am so glad you've asked a few friends to vote! Thank you for adding some of your books. I want to show that Goodreads has a far more eclectic readership than their lists usually let on.

With all best wishes, Gabrielle

Xenophon Hendrix Do you want no fantasy at all, or just no fantasy romance?
