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!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!

Browse the whole list!


1,000 Books to Read Before You Die by James Mustich1000 books is no small list and Mustich has clearly given them all much thought and consideration. As a devotee of the written word and all the many stories kept between covers, I would add a few more. That's part of the fun of this book - finding new things to read and remembering the ones I loved so much I am ready to go to bat for their inclusion. 

1,000 Books to Read Before You Die by James Mustich ($35.00*, Workman Publishing Company), recommended by Malaprop's Bookstore Cafe, Asheville, NC.
