Good Reading Suggestions From Last Month

Crab NebulaMy reading suggestions this last month seem to have recommended many new titles I have yet to read. I’d like to say that I will fill in the gaps without delay but the truth is that although I try to suggest a new title each day, I certainly don’t read a new book each day so, inevitably, I keep falling further and further behind (and this is not even considering all the other books I want to read but haven’t recommended the on this website.

So, if you read something I haven’t read yet, post a comment and let me know if I should move it to the top of the stack or maybe just take it down to the book exchange, unread (actually, in today’s digital world, I would simply click DELETE, right?)
