A librarian friend was telling a story the other day
about the time she and her husband
forced her two teenage sons to go to see a Broadway play.
The boys begged to be left back in their hotel room,
but the librarian and her husband made them go.
When the librarian and her family got into the taxi,
after the play was over,
there was a long silence.
Then the younger son said abruptly,
"The next time I don't want to do something
you want me to do...please make sure I do it."
I've been blogging since 2008.
That's four years of blogging.
I read reviews in newpapers and in magazines,
but the best recommendations I've ever had for books
come from bloggers.
Here are ten favorite reads from the last four years
I never would have read
except for the urging of bloggers.

the next time I don't want to read something
you want me to do...please make sure I do it.
And thank you for your recommendations.
Keep them coming.
