Recommended Reading

According to a list I cobbled together from Facebook, I have over 1,500 books read. Maybe if I find myself with nothing to do one day, I will take pains to type out the title of every last one. Today is not the day. Tomorrow doesn’t look any more likely.

Authors are listed in alphabetical order by last name. Beneath are those series I’ve read and recommend, and a few are just individual novels. If the other is listed by himself, I’m recommending everything he’s ever been involved in.
