30 Day Book Challenge–via Jake Kern

I don’t often post or respond to memes on this blog.   Long time readers may recall my post The Einstein’s Brain God Does Not Exist meme,  but as the years have gone by I have more and more restricted myself to posting nothing but book reviews on this site.      However,  my buddy Jake Kern has introduced the 30 Day Book Challenge.    It fits in oh so well with my book review theme that I find that I just have to play along.    The challenge is simply to name and discuss your selection for each of the thirty prompts below.      Jake has asked that you not use the Bible or your own self-published works for any of the selections.     I will be posting my answers to this meme,  one per day Monday–Friday starting on Monday 9/26.

Feel free to play along on your own blog or on Facbook.      I look forward to sharing some great books with my friends and hope it will be fun for everyone.
