Recalling the Book Suggestions From November

Once again I am providing a summary listing of the books mentioned each day during the previous month. I have read quite a few of these books and can vouch for their quality but you still should consider that your tastes may differ, so check out a review of two if you are unfamiliar with the author or the book. Remember, reading is still rather subjective and reading lists are generally even more subjective. But lists are good to give you ideas and, as I see it, if a list of 30 book titles yields one good idea, then the list is well worth it .. good ideas, like good books, are getting pretty scarce nowadays.
