The New York Times Sunday Book Review showcases some interesting looking books, along with reviews.

HuffPost Books, has interesting articles, reviews and reading suggestions.

Why not wander over to Dallas-Fort Worth Book Reviews to compare their reviews.

I am currently reading the classic, Evergreen, by Belva Plain. I am enjoying it, so far. I like books that depict New York City and the immigrants whose lives developed within it, and the surrounding boroughs.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

The New York Times Sunday Book Review has listed their choices for “The Best Book Covers for 2014”. Let’s face it, we often buy a book due to its cover, due to the fact it strikes some emotion in us, or we find it intriguing, or geometrically pleasing. To read their choices, along with the name of the designer, check out this link.

Check here, for their list of “The 10 Best Books of 2014“.

Here is a link to some of the books I have read in 2013.

I hope to achieve more reading in 2014. The problem is, I often find myself reading books with a large amount of pages…over 500 pages, up to 900 pages. What might look as if I do not read much is not accurate if I looked at from that perspective.

I have The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt on my stack of books to read. The Valley of Amazement, by Amy Tan is next after that.

Here is a link to NPR’s Hardcover Fiction List for the Week of Jan. 2, 2014.
