Unfortunately, it's only recently that I've started to keep track of who requests what. I've also started to put brief synopses with the fiction titles, but that doesn't help you, probably. I think I've started to put genre, which should help; if I haven't, I will, for new requests--that way you can search for fantasy, children's, young adult, sci fi, etc. Some are hard to categorize. Sometimes I assume certain authors are known for what they write, e.g., a lot of the children's authors. The nonfiction titles are pretty self-explanatory. The list is divided into Fiction and nonfiction, but that's about it. You are wonderful for taking books from the Wish List to scan--probably the best--and anything I can do to make it easier for you to find what you might like I'd be happy to do. I'll try to be more consistent in putting in the genre. If there are particular authors or genres you're interested in, or particular kinds of nonfiction (conservative? history? liberal? religion?) let me know and perhaps I can send you a list offlist.
