It is, of course, a great help to me that my husband and I have
approximately same taste in books... He often urges me to buy books he
himself would like to read, but usually I like them, too.
I've been to Sweden several times and noticed that you have a better
selection of fantasy books in bookstores thatn here in Finland. I wonder
if it is the same with libraries? Have you tried finding e.g. Kays books
(those you don't want to buy due to high price) in libraries? In Finnihs
libraries, at least, we have quite a wide collection of books in other
languages than Finnish. Surprisingly many books can be found - but not
often those one would suspect...
