Monday Musings #2



What is the one (or maybe two) qualities a book must have for you to pass it along to your best friend as a “must-read”?

In order for me to pass a book along to a friend, it has to be memorable in some way.  I am very reticent to recommend or pass a book along to a friend unless it ‘spoke’ to me in some way.  Usually a book speaks to me in memorable characters doing wonderful things; but more importantly, I think a book should say ‘something’ …tell you something of human nature or give you an ‘a-ha’ moment! 

If you were my friend (I hope that you are), here are a few books I would recommend!

Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee
Persuasion by Jane Austen

There are a few more… but these top my list!  What books would you recommend to your friends and what makes you recommend them?

Here’s a Monday Musing from a few weeks ago that I just saw…and wanted to partake in it!
What was the last book you…
• borrowed from the library?
• bought?
• cried over?
• disliked and couldn’t finish?
• read & loved?
• got for review? (or: got in the mail?)
• gave to someone else?
• stayed up too late reading?
My answers…

  1. I stayed up late to finish 'The Far Pavilions' also. It's a good book. :)

Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. If you leave a link to yours, I would love to visit... but it may take a few days before I comment or explore!

Sorry about the word verification - I hate them, too - but I hate vulgar spam more!

Have a Fabuloso Day!
