Calling All Readers: Book Suggestions Needed
Friends, your nominations are requested for the Valentine’s column on suggested reading. Please send your top picks with a 10-wordish pitch as to why we must read them.
Spelling counts. No it doesn’t. But as I’ll be ripping your referral word for word, packaging counts. And in a world where beauty matters, I admit that book covers can sway the Decider, me.
Nepotism Allowed. Only you have to pitch it, ‘kay?

Sorry, haven’t read anything lately I would recommend! If I think of one, will send it on.

For Valentine’s Day, I recommend “Crossing to Safety” by Wallace Stegner. It tells the story of a group of friends from their heady youth through middle age and retirement. It is the story of friendship, of success and of failure, of life mostly, but not always, well-lived. It is our story, dear Ann, and so must be included in your Valentine’s Day list . . .
