For Every Book I Suggest There Are Ten More I Might Want To Read

booksSometimes I struggle to decide on a book to suggest every day. Usually that is when I’m without resources and hoping to pull something interesting from my aging gray cells. But when I reference such things as the unread books I carry around on my iPad or the shelves of my daughters books that still adorn the extra room or one of the many lists of books I retain on my computer—by author, by genre, by country, by golly—I can come up with a month’s worth of reading in no time at all.

The books I suggested in July (suggestions, not necessarily recommendations) are from sources all over the spectrum including that often embarrassing New York Times.  So take a stroll back through those hot July days and for the second time take a moment to decide if a suggested read is something you might be interested in.
