Top 5 Wedensday is a group on Goodreads.com that you can join. Each week group members post a video or a blog post with their own Top 5. It’s fun!
I keep a To Read list on Goodreads.com because I can’t remember titles when I go to the library or a bookstore! In truth, I almost never do either–I request them from the library online or order them from various places online. I’m a librarian (but not in a public library) so I use the tools to save time. But, once in a while, I’m forced to browse–especially for audio books for my commute, but also from print books. Here then are the Top 5 books I’ve found that way recently–they are not ranked in any way.
#1 The Monk of Mokha
I was chilled by Eggers novel The Circle, so when I saw his name in the available e-audio books I read the blurb and downloaded it. I’m not even a coffee drinker, but I enjoyed this book so much. My review.
2. Need to Know
Ok, so this one actually was forced on me by my Mom, but as usual I enjoyed it. I didn’t have it on my list though. And, she stumbled upon it when looking for an audio for herself. Well worth it! My review.
3. 1947: Where Now Begins
I came across this print book while looking for an audio history book. It’s translated from Swedish, too, in case you are a challenge-reader. Interesting premise. My review.
4. The Kaiser’s Last Kiss
This was an interesting find–a thriller about the last days of the last Kaiser. My review.]
5. The Mushroom Hunters
A nonfiction book about hunting fungus? Yawn, you say? No! Fascinating. I learned of this when a librarian-friend pulled me into a library program one evening when I was picking up my requested books and audios. It was excellent. Here’s my review.
