My 31 Favorite Books! 31 Great Reads!

Happy Leap Year!  I thought of starting with a leap year pun, obviously, but then I decided that it’s unnecessary.  The joys of reading speak for themselves, no puns necessary.  For National Reading Month, and in anticipation of the release of “Case by Case Basis,” a book of short stories that I’ve written over the past 8 years, every day in March I will be featuring a book- my most influential books, most intriguing books, and just generally delicious reads!

I hope you’ll check back to read about my favorites, and then comment and share yours too!

Case by Case Basis (forthcoming) is 150 pages of strange stories, happy stories, and sad stories. Smattered with poems and illustrated with sketches in ink and charcoal by my sister, Natalie Willers, it’s a book you can pick up and put down and then pick up again. A perfect book with coffee or before bed. You might even find its home to be the bathroom.

In the meantime, I hope you’re reading your own favorites!  Start a challenge with a friend, do a Bout of Books (May 9-16), join a reading group in your community or online (Try Goodreads!) or just book yourself some time to read, read, read.
