Interest in HF: I’ve always loved fiction and history, so historical fiction is my happy reading zone. I think the books that cemented hist fic as my favourite were Random Passage and Waiting for Time by Bernice Morgan. I have a special interest in: WWII, Ireland, England, Italy, Canada (especially Newfoundland and Labrador), women’s history/herstory and folklore.
Favourite HF book: Can’t pick one. Recently enjoyed The Good People by Hannah Kent.
Preferred HF: I have a special interest in WWII period, especially relating to women’s history, codebreaking work, Bletchley Park. I tend to most enjoy literary fiction rather than comercial or popular fiction, but read a range.

If live in Canada and buy books (new or used) online (especially physical books rather than ebooks), which online sellers do you recommend for decent selection and good value - factoring in shipping cost, customs or any other fees?

I generally go through Amazon for used books, mostly out of habit and I'm already logged in. Most used sellers seem to list their items on Amazon, and while the price may vary by a few pennies, they mostly stick to the standard $3.99 shipping charge, even when coming from the UK. I don't know how it works in Canada.
