I like all genres, generally. Currently, I'm reading Cold Mountain (it sort of drags in the beginning, no?), I just finished The Known World. It seems I'm going chronologicallyin my books, TKW is set just before the Civil War, CM during/just after it. It seems I'm on a history binge right now, but once I'm done this book, I might be looking for something with a more contemporary setting.
Anyway - any suggestions from the peanut gallery on what titles to take on next? What books stuck with you, made you think? Why do you like them so much??
