Today, I'm doing a collaboration project with Jenny, Claire, and Chelsea! They'll have posts/videos up at their projects today, so definitely check them out.

I was super happy when they all agreed to come do this with me, because there's nothing I like more than ~seducing~ people into reccing books. My tombstone, probably: "She really liked recs. Like, really." There's an art to recommending books: figuring out your audience, trying to remember what books you've read, and deciding which they might take to. So recs can be pretty specific to each individual, but there are some books that you lie in wait with for every reccing opportunity available...just in case. I wondered: if I had a shelf with extra copies of ten books only for lending to people, regardless of their tastes, what books would I stock?

This is that list. Read more... )

Be sure to check out Jenny, Claire, and Chelsea! I'm sure their lists will be GREAT, and then after you've seen all the lists you'll be inspired to make your own and you'll @ me on Twitter to tell me about it...right? #seduction

Welcome!

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
