Book Recommendations

Recently a close friend of mine asked me for book recommendations. I messaged T on Facebook with the LONG list. I’ve added quite a few more to the list for this blog entry. My dear readers and fellow bloggers if you’re looking for a great book to read, I’d recommend any of these books. I’ve highlighted the particularly amazing books in bold.
