Very Short “Best Books” Lists

A section of a London-based website called The Browser is devoted to posting (and archiving) lists of five books recommended by specialists in their respective fields.

Although topics chosen are often based on current events, all sorts of topics are considered. Random examples of previous “five books” lists: Persian Cookery, Garden Photography, India, Globalization.

The lists are searchable by topic, so you can check to see if a topic of burning concern to you has been given the “five books” treatment. And then you can check Your Local Library to see if you could borrow one or all of them.
