Last Thursday I wandered around the library, somewhat aimlessly. I was there to pick up a book I put on hold and I am now reading titled “Everyone Behaves Badly”. Every other book I had intended to pick up was either checked out or non-existent.
I checked with the librarians, as they have often recommended some fantastic books in the past. However, they were very non-committal this time. Perhaps they hadn’t read anything good lately. Perhaps they were tired of me.
I ended up grabbing a bunch of books for the next couple of weeks, some at random, some because their pictures or titles struck me as cool. I even read a few of the blurbs at the back–though the placement of the library bar code foiled this on a few occasions.
As wonderful as that was, it took time away from my dinner and a dozen other things I could be doing. Also, I might add, it was fraught with danger. I might have picked up a bunch of duds. While I hate quitting books midway through, I am getting better at cutting my losses these days.
So, I am asking you readers and WP followers for some recommendations. You can see what I have been reading this year by clicking the tab at the top of this page if that will help you. You can also recommend your favourite book of all time or your current favourite. Don’t worry about stretching my boundaries, I will be making my own decisions. And don’t worry, I won’t hold you responsible for bad choices….though I have every right to.
