Because there are far too many books published for you to read about all of them, let alone read them all, BookBrowse seeks out and recommends only the best of the best. Then, we give you all the information you need to decide which are just right for you.
After a year of informal surveys and queries, we [Susan Hanks, Debbie Reese, Teresa Runnels, and Tim Tingle] offer a list of over 100 books that every museum and library should have on their shelves. Written by tribal members, these books are the foundation of our literature as Indigenous people. (not current but still a good list.)
What are the five best books to read if you want to learn more about Henry VIII? Which five books exemplify the best of comic writing? What about the five best contemporary Scandinavian novels? Five Books has a simple premise: "We ask experts to recommend the best five books in their subject and explain their selection in an interview."
The project is based out of London and features a U.S. editor; thus, most (but not all) interview participants hail from these countries. Interviewees include authors, academics, entertainers, and public intellectuals. New interviews are released twice a week.
LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.
Book Marks exists to serve as a consolidated information resource for the reading public and a link between the worlds of literary creation, criticism and consumption. We hope it will bring more attention to great books and great criticism.
We carry high quality ebooks: Most Project Gutenberg ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers. We digitized and diligently proofread them with the help of thousands of volunteers.
No fee or registration is required, but if you find Project Gutenberg useful, we kindly ask you to donate a small amount so we can buy and digitize more books, maintain our online presence, and improve Project Gutenberg programs and offerings

River of Renewal:United by Water-Divided by People
River of Renewal chronicles the ongoing battle over the resources of Northern California’s and Oregon’s Klamath Basin. For its American Indian filmmaker, this is a journey of self-discovery as he uncovers the elemental bond between California native tribes, the river, and its legendary denizen, the salmon. The film reveals how different dominant groups over the generations have extracted resources from the Klamath Basin with disastrous consequences including the collapse of wild salmon populations. River of Renewal shows the collision between sustainability and exploitation of our precious and diminishing resources. The outcome may be the largest dam removal project in history and the restoration of a once vital river. (Amazon)
