So Many Books, So Little Time is hosting the 30 Day Book Challenge. Each day for 30 days I'll be answering one question about books.
Day Three: Your favorite book to recommend to friends
I blather on about books all the time to people. I'm pretty sure most of them don't listen but the ones that do, oddly enough, tend not to like the books that I recommend to them. Maybe I'm just not a very good judge of people's likes and dislikes. It's not like I'm suggesting books that suck. Neil Gaiman, Derek Landy, Jane Austen, Terry Pratchett, Margaret Atwood: these are some serious great writers. So what's the problem here, people?
Anyway, the number one book that I recommend to people is:
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. This is actually one of the only books that I've recommended that most people who read it liked. I've had people dislike American Gods, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Lolita, etc., but I can't seem to go wrong with Good Omens. My friend Becca read it and then made her mother read it and now they both sing it's praises. The funny thing is that this was a book that was recommended to me. I feel like I'm sort of carrying on a tradition.
