The best book I've ever found on short reads is 100 One-Night Reads. Every book the authors list is a book that can be read in a single evening. No more excuses like I don't have time to read, folks. Turn off the tv and read a book.
Over the years (the copyright is 2001) I've picked up many books from this book of books. Here are some of the best from this book:
Dubliners The Great Gatsby Mrs. Bridge
Between Meals: An Appetite for Paris Breakfast at Tiffany's
Animal Farm As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning 84, Charing Cross Road
The Sun Also Rises True Grit
I am off now to request some other books from the list from the library. I think I'll try Where Angels Fear to Tread and Snow Country and Pale Horse, Pale Rider.
Do you have any short books that you recommend?
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
