When asked to give book recommendations to others, I sometimes find it difficult to recall some of the books I have read recently and indeed what would befit a certain persons literary criteria. Consequently, I’ve gone through the bookshelves and selected some I thoroughly enjoyed in recent months featuring a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. Further information on each selection can be found by clicking on the title and author. I even took a photo of them resting upon the living room table which I may use as the wallpaper for my computer screen, that will make for an exciting change of wallpaper day I have no doubt.
