Best of 2011

Every year, one of my favorite tasks is assembling my Top 10 List, which usually (actually always) involves winnowing and eliminating –  at the end of the list, there are even more titles I really enjoyed.  This year I’m moving two perennials to the “Emeritus” category – Louise Penny and William Kent Krueger – they are almost always on the list so, while including the wonderful book each of them wrote this year, I’ve left room for 10 other titles as well.  Happy reading! read more

Best Of 2012

I love remembering back over the year to the books that gave me a thrill or a delightful character or a great story or a memorable setting or gorgeous prose – or all of these. It’s always tough to winnow this list to 10 – I’ve listed other titles at the end of this list that were also great.  For the month of December 2012, we offer these titles, including the extra recommendations, at 15% off.  (Please contact us in order to receive the discount.) This list is alphabetical.
