I've never found anyone whose taste matched mine more than approximately. My
sister and I read a lot of the same stuff, but our tastes are like two
circles that intersect for about 1/3 of their volumn. My son is a fantasy/sf
reader, but again we like just some of the same books. I don't suppose any
of us have exactly matching tastes, but at least on this list we have some
idea of working out *why* we like or don't like books.
