I decided to start off my year of reading challenges by soliciting more suggestions from my friend Cait. I don’t like reading book reviews very much. Instead I like to get recommendations from people I know and trust. So far, it’s working out pretty well for me.
Here are some gross generalizations about what I learned:
- There are some excellent Australian authors out there
- John Green is a good author too, but just isn’t my style
- Compelling characters and an enchanting tone can make a story with flawed structure more enjoyable
I wasn’t very diligent in writing up book reviews this time around. I don’t particularly enjoy writing reviews even though I enjoy discussing books in person.
Next reading challenge is much less exciting, but no less important. I’m tackling finance books, so if you have any recommendations, let me know about them in the comments!
