Love the forum. I love sci-fi (Greg Bear, Niven, etc), Historical Fiction (Michener, Jakes) and especially Alternative History (Turtledove, Flint).
Even Steven King surprised me with 11/22/63. It was a fun read.
I also love collecting and reading old books. I recently read Country Squire in the White House from 1940. It is amazing how similar the story seems to be to modern times. Seems not much has change in politics.
The best part about finding old books in antique stores, used books stores and estate sales is finding personal inscriptions in them! It's like a treasure hunt every time we go out. I am just doing beta of my website to document these inscriptions and old books. It will be fun to search through, find and read about the personal treasure that have be forgotten on dusty book shelves. If you have any old books with inscriptions that you can add to the library or have any suggestions to improve the site I would love to hear feed back.
