The best books - a listing of their favourite books
Creating a book shortlist is a very hard job for me. After all, I like to browse and have many books. I' ve been doing it since I learned to learn how to tell. Makes my schedule too long. So, I chose to start writing about the books I know I would start again.
But I do acknowledge that this approach leaves out many of the books I have been enjoying. But since it limits the scope of my work significantly, I have chosen the books I am writing about here on this one. You' ll find this listing at the bottom of this page.
I have really loved to read about my Kindle since the emergence of eReader. There are also many audiobooks that I hear through headphones connected to my Kindle or telephone. Even though it is a full pains in my back when I go to sleep when I read and can't find my place the next time!
And I know that a great many folks choose to keep a notebook, sniff it... The sheer laziness of being able to down load rehearsals of books and try them out for free strikes hell out of all of the books romantics perceptions about the look/scent/sense. There are three ways I can choose the books I want to have.
I' m going through the best book reviews in my favourite papers this week-end and downloading examples of those I'm interested in. At the end of each week-end I usually loaded down some examples. I' m pretty unscrupulous when it comes to choosing which ones to buy because of the huge amount of sample I'm downloading.
I' m going to buy the remainder of the volume. lf not, l'll go on and rehearse the next one. The other way I buy books is on referral of a mate. Not all the referrals I accept, but if what my boyfriend says about the script interests me enough, I'll dowload an example and try it out.
But only if I have found what they say interesting enough to make me interested in their writing. I' m not saying there's something not right about it, but if that's all, it's just not enough to get me to study her work.
Now, as my readers will already know, I recently added a "My favourite books" section to my newletters. Here I am chatting briefly and informeally about the textbook I am currently studying. Just like the newsletter, I keep my favourite books pages straightforward, informative and talkative with just a short summary of why they made it onto my favourites lis.
