365 Groovy Books Worth Reading #1 - 10

Eight years ago today DEEP DISH was born, and I want to thank all of my readers for their continued support during this fabulous blogging adventure. Since I originally began DEEP DISH in order to promote my first novel, I thought it would be fun to celebrate this special occasion by sharing "a few" of my favorite books (in random order). And hopefully during this yearlong endeavor, many of you will discover some groovy books worth reading.

So here are my first 10 books (click on a title for more information or to purchase a copy):

1) Tales of the City (1978) by Armistead Maupin
The first novel in Maupin's beloved series about the LGBT and straight denizens of 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco (I bought my paperback copy in 1983).

2) Lauren Bacall By Myself (1978) by Lauren Bacall
One of my favorite celebrity autobiographies (my paperback copy was published in 1980).
