Yes to more libraries and bookstores! There can never be enough! And I forgot about Jane Austen novels, could definitely use less of those!

I'm kind of a font snob and a lover of travelogues.

Check out my list at The Scarlet Letter.

I agree with almost all your likes. And I agree with all your dislikes, I too hate all those kind of books. Except, the Recycled Jane Austen books, I really have found a few I enjoyed, but there was one I threw in the trash after only reading a few pages. So I guess I agree somewhat with the recycling of her books, well somewhat, anyway.

I completely agree about the paranormal books and zombie books. How refreshing it would be to peruse the YA aisle without being overwhelmed by the undead.
