Love books?  If so you know there is nothing worse than sitting in your home alone without a book, or standing in the library or book stores with thousands of options.

That’s why when two tickets were donated by one of our members to the Wines and Lines Canadian author event this April 2015 in Oakville to raise money for students scholarships for those who need them I decided that people should enter by sending in a book recommendation and that way we all win.

Enjoy the list and comment with something you just finished that kept you up all night or a special treasure you have  sitting in your book shelf that you will never add to a garage sale pile.
