The title of this blog is things I learned from my readers. The pieces below link to comments or websites.

I generally post my recommended reading list a month or three after I’ve done the reading. Which means that all of the holiday stories that I read get recommended in January or February. In 2011, I decided to do a compilation of past holiday recommends so that you can get them for the appropriate season. (Please note: the stories might have shown up in other collections. I haven’t gone searching, but you might want to.)Read More
