Here's a #staffpick from basement bookseller boice: My Love Story by Tina Turner. 🎶💜⠀
“This is the perfect book if you‘re looking to stay motivated in your life. Tina Turner has overcome a stroke, cancer, a kidney transplant and suffered the loss of her eldest son to suicide last year. Tina reminds us to 'keep going' as she‘s consistently done. I take her words to heart as I work through my own challenges and pursue my dreams.“

“Barbarian Days is William Finnegan‘s memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life.“ 🏄 What are you reading this summer on the beach?

“Diane Lake‘s relatable search for a place to belong drew me in, and her unique insight into the family she found kept me engaged. I recommend this memoir to anyone interested in True Crime, especially that of one of the world‘s most notorious cults.“

Very important read! 🌎 “Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it‘s not about carbon—it‘s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.”

'How to Read Nancy' by Mark Newgarden and Paul Karasik 👀📚 ⠀

“A maniacally thorough formal analysis of a particular Nancy strip. It shows how much thought goes into assembling the pieces of a ‘simple‘ water-hose gag, and teaches you all you really need to know about comics. Bushmiller started out as a puzzle-maker, and no wonder. All the pieces matter.”

Main floor bookseller Tom has a #staffpick to share! The Color Purple by Alice Walker. ⠀

💜📖💜⠀

“Far more gorgeous on paper than screen & spanning through rich dimensions of emotional experiences, this is one of the most powerful, compelling, & inspiring narratives to come from the past 40 years. The characters are so authentic, reading this novel is more like holding conversation than fiction. This book is family in the deepest sense.”

Happy #StaffPickFriday from Rare bookseller Morgan! ????????? by Leila Del Duca & Sarah Vaughn ?: "This is the most amazing thing I've read in a long time. It's a story of magic and intrigue in which our heroine, the illegitimate daughter of the king, fears for her life. But her sleepless knight is there to protect her. Or is he? The fact that he hasn't slept in years is affecting him..." Find it on the 2nd fl in our comics section! ?

REQUIRED QUEER READING! ✨Today‘s #staffpick is When Brooklyn Was Queer by Hugh Ryan, from main floor manager Billy M.
🌈🌈🌈⠀
“A refreshing read. Unlike other queer histories, Ryan does not focus solely on the gay white male experience. We're shown stories that span the sexuality spectrum; proving that feelings, actions, & identities existed long before we could name them & in some cases were more widely accepted (or ignored) than they are today.“
