So I managed to read about 60 things last year, according to Goodreads, and hope to conitnue that this year. Right now I'm reading two things: the collected "American Gods" comics (which are blowing my mind), and an old translation of the Mahabharata by William Buck.
Hi there. As there seems to be quite some people here who are big into reading here, I want to ask what books should be read by someone who doesn't really have an habit of reading, or rather, if you could recommend, let's say, 3 books for someone to start with, what would they be? Also, since as I stated before, I don't have an habit of reading so I'd rather have recommendations of books that stand on their own instead of starting with a series containing a lot of them, as I think it would be overwhelming. Well, since I haven't said what genres I like (and that obviously would make it very hard to give suggestions), I'd like to try fantasy (specifically medieval era) books and also police/mystery/thriller type books, but the problem with it is the majority of titles that relate to medieval era normally are part of series and that's not what I'm looking for at the moment. Thanks.
