Friday Five: Books!

I hope some of you received books for Christmas presents; I did and have been reading ever since. Then I discovered a new author from those recommendations that pop up on Instead of buying those books, I've been checking them out at the library, which will not help Amazon's future recommendations for me at all.

So tell us what you're reading, what you would and would not recommend--five books or authors! And if you don't want to do that freestyle, here are some questions:

1. What books have you recently read? Tell us your opinion of them.

2. What books are awaiting your available time to be read?

3. Have any books been recently recommended?

4. What genre of books are your favorite, along with some titles and/or authors you like best?

5. What have you read lately that you have a strong urge to recommend? (or to condemn?)

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment with the formula I can never print out--click here for the info about it.


  1. I did play this morning, though now both daughters are crying. There's no such thing as peace in the morning here. :-) Look forward to reading after I get the oldest to preschool through the latest layer of snow.


    Haven't figured out how to do the link thing but here is my Friday Five.

  3. One of my new year goals was to read more! I am getting my start here.

  4. i can hardly wait to come back and read who's reading who and getting some more "to-reads"! but it will have to wait til this afternoon/evening.

    i had a great time playing, thanks Jan!

  5. be read. Hear about them all here.

  6. Blogging again after a dry spot, I played at Books R Us. I can't wait to read the others!

  7. Books, huh? Had to play this one at Bookgirl. Looking forward to perusing everyone else's for recommendations.

  8. This is the best FF ever! And it's my birthday--what a beautiful way to enjoy it :).

  9. The Friday Five plays to my strength here.

  10. I finally got to the library!

  11. I'm a day late and a dollar short but I'm playing! BOOKS!
