Everyone's always talking about the hot new Y/A books, and new book smell too. I've read some really awesome Y/A, but I also like old books(and the old book smell). I know old books still have something to give us, so do you guys have some recommendations of books not written in the recent past?
I have one: My name is Asher Levby Chaim Potok. It is about Asher Lev, a Hasidic Jewish boy who is also a great artist. That is the source of conflict, as the Hasidic sect is the most religious, yet he feels drawn to paint things seen as controversial.
