What were those reading suggestions?

booksEvery day I look around my bookshelves or scan the lists of books I have already read and uncover a new book that might be of interest to other readers. In case you missed any of these titles this last month, I have listed the entire month’s suggestions below.

If you create or peruse lists of books others recommend you might find a few tempting titles to add to your TBR list. The funny thing is that even I, when creating my lists, often get excited about a prospective read But that can be dangerous:.The modern day availability of digital editions allows you to have a copy of a interesting book on your iPad in a matter of minutes. If you’re not careful you can spend more money at an internet bookstore than you ever spent at the local sushi bar (which can add up damn fast, especially if you like exotic seafood that might still be wiggling).

So check these out (and let us know if you like to read while eating sushi).
