Reading Suggestions from May

BooksIt’s time to recap the book selections made at this site in the last month. I must admit that there are quite a few titles here that I have not read and many of those I will be adding to my reading list for the future. Did you see any books on this last month’s list that might pique your interest? Maybe you have a few suggestions of your own … they’re always welcome.

One author I haven’t read as yet but have collected several of his books and stories is Barry Lyga. Sounds interesting … anyone know?
