Book Recommendations

I love reading, and I love connecting book lovers to my favorite books.

Here are some book recommendations that are great fun and worth reading any day. You may also enjoy my Goodreads account (dudes, how much of a bummer that Goodreads was sold to Amazon? As sad as Kettlemen’s being sold to Einstein Bagels. Although I haven’t been consistent about updating Goodreads, so I guess I’ll just wander away for now.) or Twitter stream.

Recommendations for April 2013:

Are you interested in how things work?
