At the outset of 2012, I resolved to read 50 new books and see 50 new movies. I kept track of the effort on Pinterest and, while I managed to watch 70 new films last year, I only managed to read 23 new books.
I still have a bit of a TBR pile to slog through, but I feel disconnected from the act of discovering new authors and books like I once did. I’m also reading a lot less licensed fiction than I used to (only when the creators interest me or the concept sounds especially worthwhile – too many Star Wars EU epics just plain old burned me out).
With that in mind, I’m soliciting recommendations for new stuff to read. Fiction, nonfiction, any genre. Just so long as it’s good or at very least good fun.
