The Flashlight Worthy bloggers say they're "Recommending books so good, they'll keep you up past your bedtime." They explain,
Why Flashlight Worthy Exists
Amazon sells every book in print, but the choice can be overwhelming. Flashlight Worthy is here to help: We don't list the best selling books — we list the best books. We don't list 6,072 results when you search for John Irving (including 251 versions of Garp!) — we list only his best books just once. We don't make you hunt around for hours to find the very best books on parenting — we do the work for you. Flashlight Worthy is nothing but thoughtful, hand-picked recommendations... Organized into hundreds of useful, interesting, fun lists... And all we do is books. :)
Every day, a new list, with a bit of commentary. How about these:
- The Best Historical Mystery Books
- The Best Books for Lovers of Henry David Thoreau's Walden
- Wayward Women: Great Books Where Women Hit the Road
- 12 Classic Steampunk Books
- Run, Zombies Ahead! Books If You Love the Undead, or Are the Undead
- Alternate History Sci-Fi: the Best Earths That Never Were
Just a sampling.
There is even a Questions & Answers page, where you can ask other readers for recommendations of specific types of books, or other book-related info.
I love reading the lists, and making notes about books to add to my (already immense) TBR shelves. I like seeing how many of the books on the lists I've already read, too, and whether my opinion matches theirs. It's a book nerd's delight.
