Book bucket list (#SFWApro)

AbeBooks proposes a book bucket list. Th idea is to read at least one book in each category: historical novel, SF book, graphic novel, Bohemian novel, weird book, Jane Austen book, a book about betrayal, a signed book, etc. The last category shows, I think, the primary purpose of the list (buy stuff from AbeBooks!) but I still like the idea. And skimming categories, I can see several interesting books (and obviously having only 400 books on my to-read list isn’t enough).
And dang it, I loooove Abe’s weird books list. It’s hard not to be intrigued by books such as How to Poo on a Date, Bombproof Your Horse, Teach Your Wife to be a Widow, How to Make Love While Conscious, Increasing Laundry Output and A Guide To Bone Toothbrushes of the 19th and Early 20th Centuries. On the other hand, some of them seem pretty cool—I actually have One Good Turn, an excellent history of screws and screwdrivers by Witold Rybczynski. Still, there’s always A New Look at Wifeswapping.
