Many Are Published, Few Are Read

imgres-2.jpgOne year I reprinted the entire year’s list of recommended or suggested titles, all three-hundred and sixty-five or so. That was probably unnecessary and I don’t think I have done it since. I have been publishing these suggestions off and on since 1997 or so and although a complete list would be interesting, it would be impossible since I have migrated the ACOR website from one platform to another, one server to another, one application to another over the years.

To date this site on WordPress has been the most successful and the most inclusive (but not always the easiest to maintain). Even though I often have to generate lists via cut and paste instead of automatically generating subsets of books from my database, I still find the WordPress application and online platform the best place for my reading site and my grouchy pronouncements on society or politics or bodily fluids.

But enough of that; here is a recap of the suggested books cited each day during December 2016:
