Suggested One Read: Nothing to Envy

Book cover for Nothing to Envy by Barbara DemickThe Daniel Boone Regional Library is accepting nominations for the 2012 One Read book through November 30. Perhaps partially due to the success of last year’s selection, many readers are nominating nonfiction titles. Among these books is Barbara Demick’s “Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea.” Our nominator writes, “It’s a highly fascinating book of suffering, joy, survival and love in communist North Korea. A shocking and unbelievable account of people who never give up hope.”
