Book recommendations?

Taken from 5 Minutes for Books:

Do you care about awards? When you’re looking for a book to read for yourself or your child, do you consult awards’ lists? Does hearing press about a book winning an award make you want to read it?

I have to say that a lot of the books that I choose to read for myself are books that are on lists or have won awards: banned books, Newbery Medal, Pulitzer, you name it.  I also look at high school reading lists and college reading lists because then I can get an idea of what’s being read and for what purpose.

  1. I like to go to the library and wonder. Sometimes I pick fiction, sometimes non-fiction. Sometimes I go with a specific topic in mind, but mostly I like to wonder and see what treasure I can find.
