I read all the time, and I constantly write about what I’ve read. So here’s a list of books I’ve talked about in blog posts. My favorites on this list are the short stories and picture books. Maybe that says something about my attention span; it’s a sure bet that I didn’t read every page of a book over 300 pages. But that didn’t stop me from putting those on the list. It’s sort of like a blind date: you only need a short time to know if it’s a keeper.
