OK, I’m probably lying, but it’s true that my earliest — best — memories involve books.
It’s been a constant favorite ever since I can remember.
I still love to read, and while it’s true that I don’t have as much time for it as I used to and that my literature of choice is usually Entertainment Weekly or Us in the bathtub, I do still try my best to get to a few pages every night before my eyes shut from exhaustion (or from the two glasses of wine I’ve enjoyed).
Occasionally on the Friday Favorites I recommend books, and it’s come to my attention from some faithful readers that they don’t always write the titles down (too much wine, probably) and that a list of all these favorite books might be helpful.
You asked — I answered!
If you look up top, right under the great big “You’re my favorite today” banner you’ll notice that I added a new tab — squished right in between the EW.com tab and the BUY MY BOOKS tab (which, seriously, have you done yet?).
I’m calling it “FAVE BOOKS” because I’m a writer and it’s my job to come up with unique, original phrases. Obviously.
It’s where I’ll list the books I recommend on the blog as well as others that have been long time favorites. When you need a good book to read, check out the list! Obviously I won’t presume you will share my taste (for instance, you won’t find any true “Chick Lit” books, true-crimes, history lessons, or sci-fi here — they’re all just pretty straightforward contemporary literature) but if you like a good story — a good escape — then I’m sure you’ll find it in one or more of these favorites!
Go ahead. Try it out. I’d add the link right here to make it even easier for you, but I don’t want to enable you.
It’s right up there, just begging for your mouse to click it.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of the ones on the list — it’ll be like a little comment thread book club (but sadly, without the wine and snacks).
I’m also on Goodreads, but never remember to use it. It’s kinda like my vacuum in that regard.
This +1 button tells Google you liked what you’ve read. Thanks!
