I'm interested in reading more fun books, written in 1945 or earlier, which clearly set themselves in the time and place that they were written. Examples include Anne of Green Gables, Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers, Pride & Prejudice, and China to Me.
Some more of my particular favorites are:
Jane Austen: Persuasion
Elfrida Vipont: The Lark on the Wing, The Spring of the Year
L.M. Montgomery: Rilla of Ingleside, The Blue Castle
Emily Hahn: England to me
Dorothy L. Sayers: Clouds of Witness
Noel Streatfeild: Movie Shoes, Theater Shoes, On Tour
I'm not as interested right now in finding good historical fiction -- it's just not the same as a book coming out of that time and place. (Witness Dorothy L. Sayers' series and the two additions that were written in the 1990's.) I'd also like the books to be reasonably easy to read, fun, or light (or medium). I don't want to have to read anything else to understand or enjoy the book.
I like children's fiction, mysteries that aren't too gory or scary, regular fiction, biography, biographical stories, and probably more that I'm not thinking of just now.
