Refer A Book Weekend 6/2/09!

Rules of Refer A Book Weekend: To play all you have to do is recommend a book that you liked and post in the comments. Tell me why you liked the book or link to your review. I will pick a recommendation, then add it to my TBR pile and the person who recommended the book will get to win a book from this Pile of Free Books that I reviewed.I usually post the Refer A Book Weekend post at 12pm EST after I am done work. Each week I will post a new post for you to comment in. The winner will not be picked until Monday so you have the weekend to recommend.

Hint: Right now I am reading a book about strange thing that have really happened in the USA. I was think maybe some of you out there know of some good non-fiction books.

A Civil Action by Jonathan Harr is an interesting read - about a tort action brought against several large companies for the improper disposal of environmental waste, the people that were badly injured, and the lawyer who refused to accept money for settlement. It's an engrossing read!

It was also turned into a movie with John Travolta, which was also well done.

I recommend "Retribution" by Jilliane Hoffman. Very fast paced book. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. You can see my review at my place, Just Books.

I would like to recommend The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Mr. Pausch passed away last year and this is his wisdom on how to achieve the most vital of all human yearnings: the realization of childhood dreams. Within his narrative are timeless lessons of showing gratitude, setting goals, keeping commitments, tolerating frustration, maintaining a sense of humor in the face of adversity, telling the truth, working hard, celebrating victories when they arrive, and choosing to be a fun-loving Tigger over a sad-sack Eeyore. This book will change your perspective on life. Here's the review at Amazon :

I am going to suggest The Book Thief for you by Marcus Zusak

It is written from the perspective of death and is considered a YA read.
