For the past few years, I’ve been reading ebooks or borrowing library books. Most of my books are in storage, in my sister’s garage (Thanks, Kate and Ralph!) and my shelf space is at a premium. Someday, I dream of having built-in bookcases in our future home. In the meantime, I very rarely buy books for myself.
But for Christmas, my awesome husband gave me a gift certificate to an actual bookstore, so I’ve got money to burn. So, help me out friends!
What books have you read lately that are worth the money and the shelf space?
I have some books on my wishlist, like The Tenth of December by George Saunders and Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. What else should I put on my list? I’m open to anything really but my favorite genres are historical fiction and contemporary literature.
Leave a suggestion in the comments. To thank you for your help, I’ll pick one lucky commenter to receive a $25 gift certificate to your local independent bookseller! I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner next Friday, January 18th.
The giveaway is closed! Thanks to everyone who participated. I can’t wait to take my list to the bookstore and browse my heart out.
The winner is… Michelle!
