These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Farewell to Manzanar, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston

This slim book is an eye opening look at the Japanese internment camps during WWII. Interned at age 7 this Wakatsuki Houston and her husband tell a story all too often forgotten in today’s history books.

From her childish point of view things didn’t seem that bad, but looking back through the lens of time Wakatsuki Houston can see the steep price her family paid for a nation’s hysteria.
