More Book Recommendations for Book Lovers

This is a continuation of my original post, “For the Book Lovers.” This was part of my mom’s program for her PEO chapter. In the last post I included some of Mom’s favorite books (Books I Love) and some of Mom’s PEO friends’ books that they love (Books YOU Love).

The following also come from Mom’s program; Books Men Love and Books Children Love. I have also added some of my own favorite as well.

Please enjoy!
