“These are a few of my favorite books…”

At the beginning of this week, I started to tweet about one book each day as a way of celebrating  Read Across America Week. I did two and then decided a blog post would be a better thing. So I deleted the two tweets and planned to write a post before the end of the week.

When I signed into Twitter today and saw that it was World Book Day and I thought, “NOW is the time to write the post.” So I went into my Goodreads account and picked out books I have read which have stood out to me in some fashion over the years.

So here they are, in absolutely random order. There is fiction, books about faith and recovery, history of various kinds – film, US, world, even beer! – one by a US President and one on baseball. You can search for my reviews for (most of) them using the search feature in the left hand column of this page. I hope that you find something that you like and read it… or two or three…

  1. I’ve read Andra’s book and the Agatha Christie mystery way back in college. The other books I’ve not heard of, but considering how many books are out there anymore, I could put together my list and you would have never heard of any of them either. Fun idea to do this.

      1. Okay, here goes, a list of books with a nod to history:

        Ghost Map by Steven Johnson
        The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal
        The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
        Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamont
        House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
        The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum
        and any of the Rumpole of the Bailey mysteries
