Kindle recommendations so far

03 Nov

Please keep in mind that recommended books for our Kindle library should meet TWO guidelines:

  1. Be available for the Kindle (check at Amazon.com)
  2. Be a book that “provokes thoughtful literary, scientific, historical, cultural, and/or ethical discussion” (as noted at the top of the recommendation form).

Please note that books not meeting these two guidelines will not be purchased for the Kindle.  However, I sincerely appreciate all recommendations that Dragons have taken the time to make and will still consider such books as possible additions to the library’s print collection.  The following is an unfiltered list of the books recommended so far:

  • Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
  • A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
  • Up from Slavery by Booker T. Washington
  • Miracle in Philadelphia by C. Bowen
  • The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean
  • Any book by Jodi Picoult
  • Any book in L. Divine’s Jayd’s Legacy series
  • Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
  • Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  • Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig

Please keep your recommendations coming!  They will be accepted through Friday, Nov. 5th!
