Our Favorite Books and Gifts of the Season

Welcome to our 2020 Holiday Newsletter! As we've done in past years, we feature here some of the year’s best books on all subjects, starting with a dozen of our most favorite titles. While these and a number of other books receive full reviews from staff members, additional titles have only brief summaries in order to allow us to include more of the books you may have missed during the pandemic. We hope you'll find the write-ups informative and helpful as you make your gift selections. As always, feel free to ask booksellers for further recommendations, whether in person or on the phone. 

Wishing you the very best at the end of a very difficult year.
