The Library Thing Unsuggester unsuggests for Alan Garner's The Weirdstone of Brisingamen:
Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin.
Cunt: a declaration of independence by Inga Muscio.
If bookownership is like the circles in a Venn diagram, I think we've identified three circles with no (or very few) common members.
I wonder how many others there are?
Christian self-help books keep popping up on my unsuggested lists. Out of burning curiosity, I entered my Joy of Cooking into LibraryThing, and unsuggested it.
Again, reams of Christian books.
Huh. Christians don't cook?
Is there a group of people out there who buy Christian books—and nothing else? Isn't that kind of odd? And we're not talking about a bunch of snake-handlers from the Sahara of the Bozart, either. These are people who are on the net, aware of LibraryThing, and using it.
There's a second large cluster of unsuggested books: vampire stuff. Laurell Hamilton and Ann Rice. In fact, LKH/Rice, and Christian theology are two identifiable strange attractors (or repellers) in the world of LibraryThing.
Vampire readers do seem to cook, though. Which is a relief, somehow.

Top radical is 'plant'. Bottom radical is 'field' (田). I.e, a plant still in the field, not ready for harvest, i.e., immature. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Plants in field are seedlings.'
