6. Recommended Books

Filed under: — chuckwood @ 9:36 am

A decade ago there were very few books available about the Moon. Now we are fortunate in having dozens of good books of interest to the lunar observer. Here are some that I own and recommend; if you click on the pictures below and buy the book from Amazon, LPOD will receive a small commission! I get the pleasure of promoting some good books, and making a few pennies as well. Who would have thought LPOD would become the place to buy books! Let me know what you think of this new feature for LPOD.

Thanks, Chuck

  1. Hi Chuck -

    Glad this is back … some of the mini-review links appear to be missing in action (Grego’s /The Moon and How to Observe It/, for example).
