in association with Books
There are an incredible number of marvelous books on Louisiana culture, music and cuisine. And I've bought lots of 'em. Those and the CDs are what I have instead of a savings account.

I've had lots of people write in and ask for book recommendations, so I thought I'd put up lists of books I've got and books I've read that I think you'd enjoy, with links for you to purchase them through, Earth's biggest bookstore.

If a title I recommend is not available through, I'll try to include mail-order information. But it's easy and safe to buy 'em here through Amazon, and the referral fees I get through books sold on this site help pay for this site. No, I'm not selling out, I just don't want this site to go away for lack of funding. Happy shopping!
