“This week’s musing asks…
What’s one book you always recommend to just about anyone?“
I am mainly a reader of mysteries and classics so my recommendations mostly tend to be from these two genres. But if I have to recommend something that any reader can enjoy, I would be in trouble. I tend to go against the current a bit. General readers and I don’t see eye to eye on most books. Still, there are a few books that come to my mind as suitable reads for all.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a book I can recommend to anyone without any reservations. It’s a safe bet. I think only a handful of people in the world don’t like it.
Goodbye, Mr. Chips by James Hilton is another one I would recommend. The book is unabashedly sentimental but that’s where its appeal lies. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
