Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.
—Louisa May Alcott
Even more so in our fast-paced, FoMO, digital age, it's nice to grab a book, sit back, and enjoy (and/or learn). It's especially satisfying when you actually know the author.
And while this certainly isn't a complete list of books by our talented friends and acquaintances, it's plenty enough to keep your nose in a book (or a tablet) for a while.
