"You should read books like you take medicine, by advice, and not by advertisement." - John Ruskin
Is there someone you admire or respect? Read the authors they recommend.
Is there an author you think highly of? If so, and they quote someone often in an approving way, read the person they quote. If you do this you will eventually discover the very best of the very best, because even shallow people like to quote great authors.
I think I will make a point of reading all the books recommended in this Book Club.
