Because all of life is stories.
At last count, Amazon boasted a book selection of nearly 18 million titles. Barnes & Noble is just over the 18 million mark. Which means that odds are some gems are going to fall through the cracks. Some amazing books might never see the light of day because they aren’t guaranteed a spot on the New York Times Bestseller List regardless of quality (I’m looking at you Patterson.) I’ve spent the last several years of my life pointing these out to anyone who asked my opinion at work, and now I want to take the next logical step:
Yelling on the Internet.
So hopefully some of these books will register as previously unseen gems. And if you think you have something to add, or another book to recommend, add it to the comments. Because I’m sure a few books have slipped past me as well.
Til then, I’ll be here. Stay literate my friends.
