Top 10 Reasons to Trust My Book Recommendations

...Because I only recommend books I have read cover-to-cover.
...Because I invest time mining for books offering unique perspectives.
...Because recommending books that either made me think, had me in tears crying-laughing or touched me to the core, turning pages at a remarkable clip are proving to naturally motivate a passion for reading.
...Because books encompassing a redeeming quality are more likely to inspire action, opposed to reaction.

In other words, recommending stories prone to nurture the spirit passes inspiration forward.

...Because many of the books on my recommended reading list have engaged self-confessed nonreaders, or surprised readers who didn’t expect to be engaged.
...Because every book on my recommended list has an elaborate personal backstory on how I found the book, what I loved most about the content and specifics of why I recommend the book. Otherwise stated, I reviewed the book.
...Because my book recommendations spare busy people the guesswork, guessing whose book recommendation list is more likely to yield a damn good read.
...Because I challenge anyone to check my recommendations.
...Because motivating genuine reading, and millions of genuine readers, is a beneficial goal for all!

It’s Official! RYCJs Top 10 Favorite Books in 2017

For those who will desire to miss it, (my You Tube video sharing what books enhanced my mood this year), I took time to spell out the list.

In no particular order:

- Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson
- Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller
- Love in the Driest Season by Neely Tucker
- Tha Doggfather by Snoop Dogg
- My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott King
- My Mistake by Daniel Menaker
- When I Was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago
- I Choose to Stay by Salome Thomas-EL
- The Journey Home by Clifton Taulbert
- Cold Hard Truth On Men, Women, and Money by Kevin O'Leary

Thank you, Authors. I HIGHLY recommend reading from this list. I've read many phenomenal books this year, and these rose to the top. Every one of the memoirs, not all written in 2017, kick-started my mood, were humorous in spots, touched me to the core, and in my estimation... promises to grow a Smart, Engaged, Literate Society.

Everyone Has a Story...

...the key is...How will you tell your story? And can you tell it well?

Just finished reading Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller. (Thoughts here.)

How to Find Books Hard to Put Down?

Tiz’ the season, and joyously I’m starting to get in the Christmassy spirit.

I can’t count the number of reading advocates springing up everywhere posting reading and writing inspiration I respect. One of my favorites are reading lists presented in categories; 100 Books that will have your brows glued to the ceiling, or 100 Books that will have you crying the ugly face… or laughing your B-Hind off, or that other other one, among 101 plenty of others… 100 Books You Should Read Before You Die.
