Today’s topic is: What Elements Or Aspects Do Books Have To Have In Order For You To Recommend To Friends Or Family?

Great question! There are quite a few specific elements that a book has to have in order for me recommend it to friends and family.

The book has to be clean and wholesome. It cannot contain graphic violence and sexual scenes, crude language, or just anything alone those lines that is trashy. Since I’m a Christian, I tend to recommend mostly books that have a faith-based message because those are highly important to me. I also highly recommend books that are edited thoroughly. That means they contain very little grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors and the writing flows nicely. Oh and it has to be interesting and perhaps thought-provoking.

What about you? What elements do books have to have in order for you to recommend them?
