"So what should I read?"

On book recommendations:

They want a book more compelling than sleep or sex, more engaging than googling old boyfriends or catching up on The Wire. The book you grab for as soon as you wake up, and read at stoplights. The term may be a sorry cliche, but for want of a better one, let’s just call these books what they are: page-turners.

It’s harder still for me to know what to recommend since I (probably) don’t know you, but to see the books that maybe aren’t quite as compelling as Jennifer Reese suggests, see the Top 5, above, or look for the ones I gush about.

I can recommend Critical Mass, the National Book Critics Circle Blog, which consistently posts posts as compelling as Reese’s. As with most books, I’d probably prefer sleep or sex if I’m desperate need of either, or even in slight want of the latter, but it’s still a good read.
