I'm a GoodReads user testing new waters after the serious website changes. I mostly read fiction, usually Anglophone classics/ modern classics; I like nonfiction (mostly social and cultural history), good fantasy and graphic novels. For guilty pleasure, I read advice and how-to books. I made at least two reading resolutions recently; 1. read less, live more; 2. read books which give me more pleasure. I have poor filters, and books I find stylistically pleasing tend to be depressing, so I need to do something about that; if you think you know a book that is very well written, but won't make me weep, please drop me a line.

Le bonheur de séduire, l'art de réussir - NE: Le savoir-vivre du XXIème siècle - Nadine de Rothschild Hard to rate. Some parts are excellent, others- completely unrelatable for us commoners. Looking for another, more realistic guide.
