This post is dedicated to Jennifer Galet who has been a good friend to me for 13! years despite the distance between us. Her birthday is July 5, but I will be in Berlin, busy with 18 teenagers, so I don't know if I will be able to get in touch.
Jen is has asked me before for book recommendations (and she has given me many, too, one on this list was from her, I believe). So I thought this would be an ok gift.
So here's a list of books that I still think about. Many are new reads for me, some are not.
Happy Birthday, Jen!
And to my other book worm friends, I love you, too!
