A few of my favorites

Dear bookish reader,

Barnes & Noble recently asked me to recommend a few books on their blog, which I was thrilled to do. Here’s my response.

“It’s dangerous to ask a bookseller and avid reader to recommend books – and it depends a lot on what I’ve read most recently and who I am recommending it to. But here are a few of my current favorites:”

I go on to list three books: a collection of poetry, a novel, and a strange and wonderful blend of genres. The poetry book is a tattered and well-loved copy, the novel is an e-book, and the third is a beautiful new hardbound edition.

And how about you? Reading anything good at the moment? What is your favorite to recommend?

    You might like Brian Doyle’s Mink River. I thought it wonderful.

    “The Howling Miller” is a sort of fairy tale from Finland-it came to mind when I read the beautiful Snow Child. It is a charming story- everyone I have given it to loved it.

  • Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls to name a few! I think you might enjoy all of them.
