l.b.'s Recommendations

Here are some things that I can personally recommend as being good stuff:

The Handmaid and the Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg
When Madeline was Young by Jane Hamilton
The River King by Alice Hoffman

Neon Bible by Arcade Fire
Wincing the Night Away by The Shins
OrdinaryWorld by Get Set Go

Go on and give them a read or a listen if you are so inclined. And thats all I have to say about that!

P.S.-I am sorry that this is an exceptionally uncommentable post, but say hi to me anyway, okay? Thanks :-)

HI l.b.!!
I have a pile of books to read. I seriously need to read books with more depth than a parking lot mud puddle.
What can I say? I love to read to escape.
