I'd very much like to offer some recommended reading ideas for you. Not so much a you-ought-to-read list, but rather just things I've enjoyed that you might like as well.
If you do take up any of these suggestions, or if you have already read them, I'd be interested to know your thoughts if you want to leave a comment.
The recommendations can be viewed individually via the list below, or you can view all of them at once via the recommendations tag in the Topics list in the blog's right hand column.
The Lover by Marguerite Duras
Honey by Suzanne De Nimes
