Recommend a Book

Earlier this year, we asked you to tell us about the books that moved you, books you loved, books that you wanted to share with others. The recommendations listed below come from your neighbors and friends who participated in the Canton Book Project. The links below feature personal recommendations across a variety of genres and include, in their own words, a bit about why the books means so much to the person recommending it. 

If you would like to recommend a book that means a lot to you, you'll find a recommendation form at the bottom of this page. Happy reading!
