The Bone Clocks Signed Edition
The Bone Clocks Signed Edition
by David Mitchell
Staff Pick
With the sweeping global vision and ability to sum up whole eras of time that he's become known for, along with a fascinating dose of fantasy, The Bone Clocks is David Mitchell's most enthralling and illuminating novel yet. Gorgeously written, bracingly intelligent, poignant, and occasionally very funny, The Bone Clocks is one of my favorite novels this year.

Percy Jackson's Greek Gods

An amazing retelling of Greek mythology told from the point of view of Riordan's Heroes of Olympus character Percy Jackson.

In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette
In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette

Truly a great adventure story, Sides's thrilling tale of the 1879 polar expedition of the USS Jeannette left me slack-jawed and wide-eyed. Vividly experience the grim, harrowing journey into a frozen world and discover the fate of the heroic crew determined to survive. Impossible to put down, this book has award winner written all over it.

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
by Haruki Murakami
Staff Pick
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki may be a simple story, but it carries an emotional heft that feels like a throwback to one of Murakami's classic early novels, like Norwegian Wood. His ephemeral and effortless prose flows like a perfectly choreographed dream and will leave you as satisfied as a long afternoon nap.

Amsterdam: A History of the World's Most Liberal City (Vintage)
Amsterdam: A History of the World's Most Liberal City (Vintage)
by Russell Shorto
Staff Pick
Many Americans have a specific idea of the city of Amsterdam: they think of its front-and-center red light district or legal drugs or, for those less interested in vice, the Anne Frank House. But Russell Shorto's interests go deeper — in Amsterdam he traces the history of the place and its liberalism, from the inception of its legendary canal system to now, with a keen eye. This is a must-read for anyone who has visited, or wants to visit, Amsterdam.

A Shimmer of Something: Lean Stories of Spiritual Substance
A Shimmer of Something: Lean Stories of Spiritual Substance
by Brian Doyle
Staff Pick
Possibly poems, possibly really (really) short stories, possibly mini essays, Brian Doyle's "box poems" — smallish bits of writing with perfectly aligned edges and not one word short or long — are so perfectly exact, they seem utterly intriguing even before you start to read. (How, exactly, did he do that?)

Doyle is a man who lives and breathes stories, and this slim book is stuffed with them. The almost worshipful view Doyle has of life's minutia is sometimes breathtaking — how does he articulate so clearly the myriad things that catch his attention (things that very few of us ever even notice)? Doyle writes, "Maybe we guzzle forty stories with every breath we draw and they soak into us and flavor and thicken and spice the wild stew we are." Doyle's style is so offbeat and unusual, every time I read him, I envision all his stories lined up inside him, so tightly packed that they escape in a giant, gorgeous burst of words and laughter.

Tangle Stitches for Quilters and Fabric Artists: Relax, Meditate, and Create with Rhythmic Stitches
Tangle Stitches for Quilters and Fabric Artists: Relax, Meditate, and Create with Rhythmic Stitches
by Jane Monk
Staff Pick
This is a great book for the quilter looking to bring something new to their craft. Zentangle is a style of doodling taken to an art form, and its practitioners are passionate about their repetitive pattern drawing. Tangle Stitches combines this art with quilting, a perfect fit as the doodles are very similar to common quilting stitches. The projects are mostly small and easy to manage.
