Excluding cheap novels, which unfortunatelly proliferate like disease, I have very wide interests.

Re: Books Wanted

Head over to Enge, they have a book brocky - heaps of books, mostly German but with a decent selection in English, in a huge cellar. Includes kids' books as well, and a few board and card games.

So you are looking for any books... you have varied tastes... but you don't like crime...

Just use some basic common sense and tell people a little more specifically what you actually like and are looking for.

Bit difficult to answer.
Lately I've bought/read books about:
Geopolitics
Medieval design
Biography on Da Vinci
Data mining
Kundera novel
WWI account
Italian rural stories

So yes, it's very varied and no, I don't like crime or thrillers.

Re: Books Wanted

I would recommend to go and have a look here (it's close to Bahnhof Enge)

Really good selection for bargain prices
