Hidden Gems Part 2


A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about some of the staff’s hidden gems.  Not to play favoritism, I am writing a Part 2 to this and then there will be a Part 3 just to make sure that everyone gets their hidden gems shared!

As book sellers, we all revel in the opportunity to share books with people.  Especially when we get to put our favorites in someone’s hands.  We read. We read a lot.  I mean A LOT. And through our continuous adventures with books, we find hidden gems all the time.  So our lists are always rotating.  In fact, some of our book sellers changed their choices from the time I started this blog to the time that it gets published.  

So, for 2022 make a resolution to try a hidden gem.  Then share that gem with friends, family, and random strangers.  Everyone needs a conversation starter when standing in line for coffee or groceries.  Waiting for your car to be serviced is another good place to strike up a book related conversation.  Without further ado, here are our Hidden Gems Part 2:
