Hard Choices for My Book Picks

 A recent go-around challenge on  Facebook was to show the cover of  a novel you truly appreciated: one a day for seven days. I had a hard time making my choices. I'm not a prolific reader, but I do finish 30 - 40 titles a year (sometimes more, if there's a lot of bad weather). I also read a fair amount of nonfiction, so picking fiction titles was a dilemna.
       I strated by checking my bookshelf. Most books I read I get from libraries--online and in town. When I find a title I really liked, I buy it.
From my bookshelf:
Liar's Moon by Phillip Kimball
The Hunter by Julia Leigh
Muse of Fire by Dan Simmons


 That took care of three days.
The next four were: 
Masterson by Richard Wheeler

Bone and Jewel Creatures
by Elizabeth Bear

I could do 365 of these "favorites."
An enjoyable exercise, that showed the variety of my reading interests: History, thriller, fantasy, contemporary, and more.
