It’s my favorite part of the blogging year: our favorite reads! The ABC staff has looked through all the books and magazines they’ve read over the past year, or games they played, or stationery they used, and picked out their top 5 (or 4, or 8). Every single item in these posts comes highly recommended, and we hope to add some ideas to your 2014 reading list.
Of course, we always love reading tips ourselves, too, and so we hope you will send in YOUR favorite reads of 2013 to us. They don’t have to be books published in 2013, just read in 2013. Please mail your Top 5 (and why these books were so good) to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st, and don’t forget to include your home address so we can send you an ABC gift certificate in the new year as a thank you. As has become a tradition, your Top 5s will be published in January.
This fifth Favorite Reads post comes courtesy of
- Maarten: nobody is as steady as he is; he still looks the same as 20 years ago and he is still Sherlock’s biggest fan. His policy of wearing all-black paid dividends this year.
- Steven: our very own Goodreads author! When he doesn’t write guide books for gay and happy men, he writes about pop culture on his blog.
- Tom: whistles while he works. Very fond of the bargain bins at Spui Records (and any other music store he encounters).
