What Are Some of Your Book Recommendations?

May 21, 2008 - Amy Phelps
I make book recommendations all of the time. What about you readers out there? What books do you recommend?

Edelene Wood recently wrote me about two books she read. One is "Monongah" by West Virginian writer J. Davitt McAteer. According to Wood, it tells the story of the Dec. 7 explosion of a mine owned by Parkersburg's first millionaire Johnson Newlen Camden and the victims were almost all immigrants from Italy, Hungary, Austria, Russia, Turkey and a few Americans.

Another book Wood recommended was the historical-fiction book Ivan Ivanov by Dr. John Tomikel and published by Allegheny Press. According to Wood, it weaves a romantic story against the real horrific conditions in Russia leading up to World War II. Wood says she is a non-fiction reader normally, but thought this book would be good enough to make into a movie.

So any other readers out there want to make book recommendations?
