Coming Soon - Staff Favorites of Summer 2021
Here are some of the forthcoming titles our booksellers are MOST excited about this summer!
Mary will read almost anything, although she does draw the line at REALLY intense sci-fi and fantasy. A lover of the outdoors, she almost always has something related to nature on her nightstand. More than anything, Mary loves a beautifully crafted novel.
Wayne will read almost anything: Classics to Contemporary Fiction, Sci-Fi/Fantasy to Noir, and sometimes even the occasional non-fiction book.
A lover of literary fiction, short stories and essays, she'll try any genre but gravitates toward the strange or sad books.
You'll find Josie recommending LOTS of translated literature, novels longer than 400 pages, literary non-fiction, and poetry collections.
Doug tries to get beyond the old school spy novel. Give him something dark and psychological with a little history or historical fiction and he's a happy guy.
Our virtual bookseller, you'll see lots of cookbooks and brand new releases from Maxwell!
