So my friend Rachel (who I haven’t talked to in forever- Hi Rachel!) posted in the comments of the last post that she needs some book recommendations. She asked for my 5 favs, but here’s the problem- well, two problems; first, I don’t think I could just narrow it down to 5, and second, my top 5 wouldn’t necessarily be her style. Working in retail, making recommendations on a daily basis taught me that you’ve got to tailor the suggestions to the people, or you’re doomed.
So, Rachel wanted books that weren’t too wordy and wouldn’t take too much effort. I take that to mean not overly symbolic or “literary” in a flashy kind of way. She also mentioned her hubby’s airport bookstore offerings not making the grade, so I’m assuming that means genre books (sci-fi, chick-lit, thrillers) are out.
