Booking through Thursday - Recent Serious

What’s the most serious book you’ve read recently?
(I figure it’s easier than asking your most serious boook ever, because, well, it’s recent!)

I had to think about this one since I don't read many serious books, but it would have to be A Worthy Legacy by Tomi Akinyanmi. This was a beautiful book and my review of it is here It's not only a book about the author's family, but it also gives the reader some inspiration to use in your own personal lives. Excellent book.

  1. I don't read very many serious books either. Guess I read mainly for entertainment, so I tend to stick to things with a little humor in them.

    Great kitty picture. I love LOLcats!

  2. Ooh when they say serious, does it mean fiction or non fiction?

  3. Good choice! :)

  4. I love the kitties =)
    I do not normally read Devastatingly serious books either, but I definitely had a recent one so this was easy this week. And non-fiction I Read often, but I never thought of Being SO SERIOUS about it, that connotates not enjoyable.. which they are to me.

  5. Great kitty pic there :-)
    Books that offer inspiration are always good.

    You'll find mine here.

  6. So-called "serious" reading takes up a pretty small percentage of my overall reading, too. Here's my response.

  7. I think you're the second person I've seen mention this one.

  8. Joy - I prefer lighter books too. I read for entertainment and that's what I like best.

    Vivienne - I think serious books are whatever each person decides. I really believe it's a subjective thing.

    Blodeuedd - Isn't LOLcats great?

    Marie - It's interesting to read what "serious" means to each individual. It seems to be different for everyone.

    Anthony - Inspirational books can be really good. I don't read many, but the one I read was excellent.

    Gautami Tripathy - I think you'll enjoy it.

    Susan - Like Joy said, I just read for entertainment so I read very few "serious" books.

    Carol and Naida - It really is a good one.
