One of my favorite parts of being a bookseller at Barnes & Noble in my teenage years was recommending books to people. This page is my grown-up version. Check out my recommendations below.  Links are to Amazon for perusing, but would you visit your local bookseller if you’re going to buy? Thanks. If you’re in Austin, try BookPeople. Denver? I recommend Tattered Cover.
