    Book of the day Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson – heartbreak and joy. The repercussions of a teenage pregnancy are felt down the generations of an African American family. Red at the Bone. Alice, What Kent said. The "Best of" books have some of the content of the country guidebooks, but not in as much detail. If you were planning to buy only one, I would recommend the RS Italy guidebook.. If you're also planning to visit Sicily, note that the brand new RS Sicily guidebook has just been released. It's well laid out with lots of detail, as with other RS books. Here are my recommendations for books that take place in Venice, all of which I have read and enjoyed. We start with a coffee table book with stunning photos and author quotes. The first novels on the list are historical fiction that take place in the 16th to 18th centuries, followed by mysteries, and non-fiction books at the end.
