Bækur sem ég mæli með

Þessi listi er í sífelldri ítrun

Bækur eru einstakar gersemar. Ég er heppinn að hafa lesið nokkrar slíkar sem hafa gefið mér mikið - góð ævintýri eða einstaka innsýn og lærdóm. Ég verð því alltaf spenntur að geta deilt þeim með öðrum þegar ég er beðinn um bókameðmæli. En þegar sú staða kemur upp á daginn tel ég mig góðan ef mér tekst að draga tvær eða þrjár bækur úr minni sem stemma ekki við það sem viðmælandi minn er að leita af. Næstu daga í kjölfar spurningarinnar dettur mér fleiri og fleiri bækur í hug sem ég hefði frekar átt að mæla sem leiðir til þess að ég fer að að senda óþægilega mörg messenger skilaboð á þann sem var í leit að góðri bók til að lesa.

Vonandi mun þessi listi hjálpa mér að koma í veg fyrir þetta vandamál.
