[which I] recommend [to] you to read


Explanation:

'which I recommend you read' - really your own suggestion is the best and simplest, David!

or 'which I would recommend you read' - then that gets the 'möchte' in there.

Given your additional context, you could say 'which I would recommend [to you] as worth reading.' i.e. there is some profit in it - since this is not about pleasurable reads like novels.
