So for Reasons, my wife is on bed rest for 1-2 months.
In this case, Reasons boils down largely to high blood pressure, and so she's not allowed to move around much and shouldn't be playing a lot of the vidya games. She is, however, a voracious reader and so in order to help get her through this (ideally) incredibly boring next couple of months I have made her a promise that I told myself I'd never make.
She is allowed to request I buy her an unlimited number of books from Barnes & Noble, regardless of bookshelf space.
I know you are already typing to me "but Rend, that is suicide" and yes, I know. But as a devoted husband, if I should need to drown myself in pages for her to be well, then so it shall be done.
So, what I need from you all is recommendations for books!
They should not be particularly heavy books. Nothing so stressful as to raise her blood pressure. Obviously books are books and they typically have conflict, but there's a difference between, say, A Game of Thrones and Dragonlance, for example.
They should be high fantasy or at least fantasy ish. No urban fantasy.
Ideally they should not be super fomulaic, she said specifically that she's looking for books that are not "junk food." In her words: "give my brain something new to chew." This particular stipulation has some wiggle room, but let's try to at least shop on the nice side of the mcdonald's menu for this one.
