Book Recommendations from Readers

by Charles Hugh Smith


Readers often recommend books to me. Here is a selection of recent referrals.

I receive book recommendations from readers on a regular basis, and come across others in other material or at bookstores. I provide the links here so you can review other readers' comments; you may find the books in your local library or in used bookstores.

As a writer, I try to buy a number of new books each year as a way of supporting my fellow scribblers.

You might enjoy scanning the entire list of worthy titles:
