Below you will find our official listing of suggested readings. As you can tell, there are plenty of books to choose from, so never let it be said that there isn't anything out there that speaks to our lives. Since Books Brothers is still on hiatus, and we know that people check out our site for updates, we wanted to provide you with a variety to keep you busy. Each of the titles listed should be currently available, and those that aren't out will have their release dates next to them.

If you aren't able to find a book through www.amazon.com or via www.google.com , please feel free to e-mail us at booksbros@aol.com and we will forward you the author/book information that we have on file.
