Book Recommendations on Between You and Me this week

Who needs those fancy pants New York Times-ers and Stephen King to recommend the best books of the year? And anyway, who reads ONLY the most recent books?

When it comes to finding a good book, the year they were published doesn't usually hold a lot of weight.

There is a wealth of book information right in our own neighborhoods and this Saturday on Between You and Me we're asking you to call in and recommend a book to others. For some of us this is a hard task, choosing just one. Like KAXE member Margaret's her list of book recommendations:

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

One more book I found fascinating was The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski

Two very long books by Ken Follett, not new and nothing I ever expected to like since they’re set in ancient times, but I loved both Pillars of the Earth and the sequel, World Without End.
What do you suggest?
