Want to become a better reader? Then READ MORE POETRY! Better yet, read funny collections like this one by comedian Gabbie Hanna.
What I Tell You In the Dark

What I Tell You In the Dark

By John Samuel 256 pages Adult

Danny Says

Interesting book to classify. Partly thriller, partly funny and definitely controversial to the religious-set, which always makes for a potential best seller!
Love in Lowercase

Love in Lowercase

By Francesc Miralles 240 pages Adult

Danny Says

I cannot write a better review than the great one listed by Kirkus Review. To paraphrase Kirkus, “Genuinely charming…A romance that involves meddlesome cats, fate, and lots of musings on Goethe, Kafka, and Rilke…[It] highlight[s] the magic in the ordinary…Samuel, full of awkwardness and good intentions, is an easy protagonist to root for.”
The Art of Travel

The Art of Travel

By Alain De Botton 272 pages Adult

Danny Says

Aaron Burcham says it best, “Healing. This book is not just about travel, it's about seeing the world with open eyes. Truly one of my favorite books and good for anyone with a wanderlust or appetite for life itself.”
Security

Security

By Gina Wohlsdorf 256 pages Adult

Danny Says

Manderley Resort is a gleaming, new twenty-story hotel on the California coast. It’s about to open its doors, and the world--at least those with the means to afford it--will be welcomed into a palace of opulence and unparalleled security. But someone is determined that Manderley will never open. The staff has no idea that their every move is being watched, and over the next twelve hours they will be killed off, one by one. A wonderful thriller by a rookie author that you’ll devour.
1985: Stories from SOS

1985: Stories from SOS

By E.C. Myers Adult

Danny Says

A collection of three novellas that serve as a wonderful expansion to the SOS world and offer another puzzle piece in the heart-pounding world filled with shadowy conspiracies and bold hacktivists.
Being There

Being There

By Jerzy Kosinski 141 pages Adult

Danny Says

One of my favorite short novels and a wonderful movie with Peter Sellers, Shirley McLaine and Melvyn Douglas. Satire written in the 70s about the wonderful character known as Chauncey Gardiner, an imbecile whose world revolves around television that rises to the highest echelons of power in American politics.
The Death of Ivan Ilyich

The Death of Ivan Ilyich

By Leo Tolstoy 128 pages Adult

Danny Says

Tolstoy is best known for the lengthy War and Peace, but we lazy readers can still impress folks at cocktail parties by mentioning we devoured the much shorter Death of Ivan Ilyich. Can’t say this book brought a lot of joy to me as I read it, but I certainly was happy to finish it!
A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Other Stories

A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Other Stories

By Flannery O'Connor 276 pages Adult

Danny Says

Have to admit that I had limited exposure to O’Connor and was quite taken by this collection of short stories. She has a wicked sense of humor – but in that sweet, Southern-charming way. What a gifted writer!
Sula

Sula

By Toni Morrison 192 pages Adult

Danny Says

Incredible entry by the Nobel Prize-winning author, Sula tells the tale of two little girls growing up in a poor, black neighborhood nestled in the barrio known as “The Bottom.” As they grow older and separately, the two friends become something worse than enemies in this brilliantly written novel.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalist

By Mohsin Hamid 191 pages Adult

Danny Says

Can’t believe I just discovered this gem about a Pakistanti Princeton grad trying to navigate subtle and blatant bigotry in a post-911 world. Provocative and heart-wrenching.
Why Simple Wins

Why Simple Wins

By Lisa Bodell 240 pages Adult

Danny Says

Bodell shows how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity and make simplification a habit in this quick, engaging and informative read (strike that – for the point of simplification, let’s just call it an “essential” read).
Papi: My Story

Papi: My Story

By David Ortiz,Michael Holley 272 pages Adult

Danny Says

Understand that I am NOT a Boston Red Sox fan (although Fenway Park is my favorite stadium in baseball). I preferred them as loveable losers, but there are a few people in the organization I just adore: Terry Francona (who now blesses the dugout of the Cleveland Indians) and Big Papi. Who the heck doesn’t like David Ortiz? The guy was always clutch and played the game the right way. Any baseball fan should like this autobiography.
Gwendy's Button Box

Gwendy's Button Box

By Stephen King,Richard Chizmar 180 pages Adult

Danny Says

So – I have this unwritten rule that I try to feature primarily new and under-appreciated authors, but I could not resist including this latest novel from the king himself. Chizmar is also well-published but not as widely known, so this is a great way to introduce yourself to fine writing that you cannot put down.
Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...

Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...

By William H. McRaven 144 pages Adult

Danny Says

I’m starting to form a section of excellent self-help books just written by former Navy SEALs. Too many things in life are overcomplicated, and McRaven does an excellent job of helping people focus on the essential stuff. I’d actually recommend this book be placed in middle schools and high schools, and I am sure they’ll come out with an illustrated kids’ version (and I’d welcome that version).
