As I have done for the past 12 years, I am asking for a list (anywhere from one to as many as six) of the books you’ve most enjoyed reading in 2021.
There is no definition to the kind of book which you might add to this list. They can be fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, science, mystery, romance, hobbies, children’s books, etc. I am just looking for what you truly enjoyed this past year (old or new books) with the thought that others might get some ideas for their reading in 2022.
Even if you think others may recommend a particular book that you liked, please include it on your list. Some folks like to know that more than one or two MillersTime readers have enjoyed a given title.
Also, if you want to include any of the books you cited in the 2021 Mid-Year post of favorites, feel free to do so.
Send me your list (Samesty84@gmail.com) with the title, author and whether the book is fiction (F) or non-fiction (NF). Please take the time to include a few sentences about the book and particularly what made this book so enjoyable for you.
For many of the contributors and readers of this annual list, it is the comments that are what’s most important about MillersTime Favorite Reads each year.
Please send your list by December 20. Then I can post the results by January 1.
Thanks in advance.
