Five Books

July 31, 2021

If you’re one of those readers who deep-dives into a subject, we’d like to recommend (again) FIVE BOOKS. The site asks experts to recommend the five best books in their subject and to explain their selection in an interview. At least two new interviews are published each week and more than a thousand interviews and five thousand book recommendations are archived and searchable.

The subjects include a huge array of nonfiction, many kinds of fiction and literature, including memoir, comics, and poetry, plus world literature, audiobooks, and much more. There’s even a section called Discover more books like the books you already love.
