Taking Suggestions

Yes, Yes, I know I just posted about having trouble giving other book recommendations. But the last time I asked you all for some suggestions I got some great reads out of it. So here I go again. I have three PaperBack Swap credits that I would like to use up. So I want to know what your top three titles are - any author, any genre - because as you know I am very versatile with my reading choices.

Recommending Books to Others

Lately I have been being asked to recommend books to people a lot more than usual. And for some reason I am struggling with this. Since I read such a wide variety of books in no particular genre, I struggle with knowing what to tell people. I have noticed that I am actually the anomaly. Most people like to stick to a specific genre and have a hard time stepping outside of that genre. And since I don't personally do this it's hard for me to understand. And that's where the struggle comes from. I find myself asking all these questions about what sorts of books they read, what types of stories they like, do they like series books or prefer singles. And by the time I get all the information I seriously don't know what to tell them anymore. So my questions to you is, how do you go about recommending a book to someone?
