There's your 25 for the week.  Plus the 5 I've already got for next week.  You guys are killing me!  I mean, I love giving you these recommendations (until you tell me to stop).


  1. Wouldn't it be nice if we had the time to read all the books we'd like to?

  2. We obviously feel a need to read a bunch of books for our readers. But, from a personal standpoint, I want to be able to read more just because. You're 100% right.
