Book Corner:
What are DEL MARIANS reading?
Virginia Lawrence | Caminito Del Rocio



When Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Richard Ben Cramer died in January, his book What It Takes was described as “a prodigious account of the 1988 presidential election that has been widely hailed as among the finest books about American politics ever written.” I had read Cramer’s obit on my iPad, and within 1 minute I had downloaded What It Takes to my Kindle app. I have read all the books listed below in the past 12 months and can recommend them all. All are available for other eBook readers, as well as in hard copy for those who prefer paper pages. Virginia Lawrence | Caminito Del Rocio
