August Book Recommendations

Wanting to support my local independent bookstore, Town House Books, I’m posting a few links to guide your book buying business their way.  If you buy any of these books, through the link or list provided, the profit for the sale goes entirely to Town House Books.  Their lists of books are so thoughtfully done, I think you’re best served by just exploring whichever one of the following appeals to you.  Thanks for helping them out!

Here’s a few great lists that have been posted or updated recently:

  • Hot Summer Reads – Includes both exciting new fiction and nonfiction.
  • Musically Inclined – From John Prine to the latest books on Bach.  Others include: Nirvana, Elaine Stritch, Velvet Underground, Prince, Dolly Parton, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young,… something from everyone.
  • Lifestyle & Home Decorating – Again, a wide range of tastes are covered.  From “A Romance with French Living” to “Inside Marrakesh: Enchanting Homes and Gardens.”
  • Social Injustice – Their online store includes a number of good lists related to racism and inequality.

Hopefully you’ll find some new books to get you through the next few months and you’ll be supporting a great bookstore that’s been vital to this community for close to 50 years.
