Today's Dose by Patricia from Portland, Oregon
Congratulations, Patricia, for claiming your $20 gift certificate!

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
by Gabrielle Zevin
Patricia's Comments
"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)

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

Sam's Comments:
"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."

Circling the Sun
Circling the Sun
by Paula McLain

Kathleen's Comments:
"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)

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Trilogy)
Shadow and Bone (Grisha Trilogy)
by Leigh Bardugo

Anna's Comments:
"The opening novel to the trilogy, 'Shadow and Bone' by Leigh Bardugo is skillfully infested with plot twists and game-changers....Bardugo is a fantastic wordsmith with a dangerous mind capable of imagining the greatest moments, lies, betrayals, and perfect-timings. I hope you fall in love with this series just as I did." (read more)

Last Bus to Wisdom
Last Bus to Wisdom
by Ivan Doig

George's Comments:
"Doig is a masterful conductor -- orchestrating words, characters, settings, and their outcomes, many times unanticipated, based on hard times and perseverance, and always with deeper meaning. 'Last Bus to Wisdom' is, sadly, the very last of his eloquent works to be savored." (read more)
