The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
by Gabrielle Zevin

Zevin's story is romantic, sweet, fun, with a touch of mystery enough to engage your mind, and a dash of heartbreak for perfect balance. Her characters are well-crafted -- I especially loved her description of Amelia as a 'big dandelion of a girl.' Read it, you will feel nice inside. (read more)

Circling the Sun Circling the Sun
by Paula McLain

Anyone who has read 'The Paris Wife' is in for a treat. The writing in 'Circling the Sun' is positively lyrical and and surely McLain's stellar triumph. McLain inhabits Markham; there is no other way Beryl Markham could be brought to life so vividly and warmly....This is a book and a woman's story that should not be missed. I can't wait to share it with my book club. (read more)

Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary
by J.R.R. Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien

This edition of 'Beowulf,' in addition to being one of the best translations I've read, including Haney's, had a number of positive effects on me. It gave me a much deeper appreciation of the poem and its historical significance as one of an extremely small number of extant cultural works by the Anglo-Saxons and their world....It's a dense, but rewarding, read, for beginners and established Anglo-Saxon aficionados alike, straight from the notes and writings of one of the 20th century's most pre-eminent scholars on the subject.
