Here Comes the Sun | Nicole Dennis-Benn

Josh is spending this #FridayReads (last week) far away from the store, but we won't hold it against him. He reports that the romance in the fittingly titled Here Comes the Sun is wonderful, and he "feels everything for them." Celebrating love feels like a great way to spend pride month! ?☀??

Hag-Seed | Margaret Atwood
post image

Have you guys SEEN these @hogarthbooks Shakespeare paperbacks?! We're obsessed. 💗💛💗💛

kspenmoll Lovely editions- have not seen them! 2y
jveezer This is the third cover I've seen for Hag-Seed. The original UK cover by http://vladimirzimakov.com/ is amazing. I've liked all the Hogarth Shakespeare's I've read. Trying to resist the urge to own them and just be satisfied with reading them...but weakening... 2y
katedensen Too pretty! I have Vinegar Girl, but I didn't know that the cover of Hag-Seed matches! Glad I held out on buying it until the paperback release! 2y

Lucas is so speedy that it was near-impossible to track him down for #fridayreads but I finally stopped him long enough to find out he's reading Eating Korea. He says it's great to read something so devoted to his culture, even its most dramatic and bizarre elements-- author Graham Holliday has eaten some foods that even Lucas has never heard of! 🍴📚

Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir | Shannon Leone Fowler

This week for #fridayreads Estefanía shares her current read: Traveling With Ghosts by Shannon Leone Fowler

"A brilliant story of grief and discovery. I love it because I feel like the author is being really honest about her feelings through this abstract memoir. She does an excellent job of putting feelings into words. A really honest read-- it feels like I'm reading into her soul." #tbr #currentlyreading #staffpicks

Donna_sBookMinute I'm going to find this book. It's probably about indie stores; but the cover illustration looks so much like one our Half Price Books. Most of the ones I've been in offer the indie experience -- down to knowledgeable book lovers as salespeople and even a store cat.

"A beautiful cookbook from the acclaimed Chef of North Carolina as well as a big book of wonderful essays as the book is sorted by ingredient and each is introduced with a story of that ingredient and Howard's life. The true tale of Southern food: rooted in family and tradition, yet calling out to the rest of the world. I hope you can appreciate this cookbook and story book as much as I do." - @jslosh

It's #recommendsday again! (How did that happen?)

Today, our recommendation comes from @JessReads at Book Culture on Broadway -

"All of the praise that SHRILL has gained isn't enough. West is unashamedly feminist, body positive, and self-aware. When she isn't being laugh-out-loud hilarious, she's being honest and sharply observant about the place of the modern woman. I loved this collection of essays!"

BeckyRoy I lucked out and was able to grab a copy and an autograph at #bookcon. I'm saving it for the perfect moment. When I need a pick me up? When I need motivation? 3y

folioforte @Thessalia it's my absolute favorite! The first book is slow and kind of vague on the plot but it's setting up the characters and the overall arc. Plus dream thieves is my favorite and centers around Ronan. 3y

nycbookboi @Thessalia yes! The first one is a little slow but thankfully short. I powered through and found that the ending kept me ~just~ interested enough to carry on to Dream Thieves (which was THE BEST) and then my heart was fully in it. 3y
