Lady Banks Pick of the Week


Read This Now: The Index

What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!"

Anne Lamott again finds a way to teach us life lessons by looking at the remarkable and unremarkable things around us. Her take on mercy is one that many will find relevant. And who doesn't need to have a little mercy in these times?

Hallelujah Anyway by Anne Lamott ($20, Riverhead), recommended by Linda, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC.
