Five Books delivers quick book recommendations

How’s this for a motto: “The best five books on everything.” That’s the idea behind Five Books, a website that’s all about doling out book recommendations, with a fun twist. Each day, the site’s got a thinker, commentator, or other specialist offering five recommendations for books from the luminary’s field, whether it’s philosophy or politics. So there’s Sara Maitland, author of  “A Book of Silence,” recommending Annie Dillard’s  “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.” And Sam Tanenhaus, editor of The New York Times Book review and author of  “The Death of Conservatism,” recommending John Updike’s  “Rabbit Redux.” And on and on, until you’ll have enough recommendations for a lifetime of reading.
