Never ask a librarian for book suggestions, unless you have some time on your hands. I found that is also applies to your grown children. My sons are twins and both love to read in two different ways. Kyle prefers a real book and Kris prefers to listen to what some people still call books on tape. (Yes, I know I’m old!) Kris landscapes and listens to books as he works. He was grinding a tree stump when I called and asked him what he’s been reading. Here are a few of his favorites. I think I can recommend them all.
Kris has apparently listened to all of Andy Andrews’ books, including The Traveler’s Gift, Little Things, The Noticer and The Noticer Returns. The last one on his Andrews’ list is The Bottom of the Pool: Thinking Beyond Your Boundaries to Achieve Extraordinary Results.
He gave such an extensive list that there’s no way for me to be able to comment on each one, so here’s a list of titles for you:
When I asked him what he enjoyed as a “kid”, he gave me three favorites.
He loved My Life in Dog Years and everything else by Gary Paulsen. He enjoyed The Giver by Lois Lowry. My favorite is also one of his favorites, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I love talking about books to anyone who will listen. Stop by the library and give me a list of your favorites. We probably have some in common. Happy reading!
