Looking for books

by Lorien E. Menhennett

Usually, I use this space to share my thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Today, I use it to ask for advice.

I discussed in a recent post about how I’ve rediscovered my love of reading books. It started innocently with rereading A Wrinkle in Time, which my sister had offhandedly mentioned to me. I’m now almost done with the fifth book in L’Engle’s Time Quintet. And I’m chafing for more.

I’ve got ideas. I have some cherished authors whose books I want to catch up on. I bookmarked the website listing the National Book Awards going back to the 1950s — lots of gems there, I know. But as with music, some of the best creations never win prizes.

So if you’ve read a book lately and loved it, or have a short list of favorites (or a long list) — of any fictional genre — please do share.

I’m all eyes.
