I am a book hoarder. I always like to have many books stashed away–either on my shelves or in my Kindle–to read at some future time. The last few months, I made it a goal to read all the hardback books I’d been saving for retirement, plus a couple of library books.
All of the following books are very good to excellent, except for the last one which was so-so–my opinions only. I’ve linked them to their page in Amazon for your convenience. Also, they are all over the map as far as genre is concerned.
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbuagh
Oral History by Lee Smith (highly recommend though you may talk like a hillbilly in your head for a week afterward)
The Periodic Table by Primo Levi
Shoot an Iraqi by Wafaa Bilal and Kim Lydersen (not what you might think and very interesting)
Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Bayne (sad indicator at 10)
Let me know if you read any, how you like them.
