Middle Grade Adventure

During this time of crisis, with school shutdowns and a lack of regularly sterilized playgrounds, I know that kids can get to be a handful. In search of solutions, I picked out my absolute favorite Middle Grade stories for children old enough to read chapter books. These books run the gamut from young to tween, so keep your kids in mind as you read. I also find that kids love adventure stories, and have fewer problems with fantastical stories than adults do. To showcase that same spirit, I give you my favorite Middle Grade Adventures.

An Important Message from Interabang Books

March 17, 2020

Dear Interabang friends and readers,

Certain Pleasures for Uncertain Times: Inspiration, Essays, Amusements, and Poetry

The pleasures of reading can involve stimulation and excitement or, in another direction, familiarity, calm, and reassurance. At the moment, many of us are considering which books we’ll pick up next because the comfort of books is especially appealing in tense, uncertain times. Here is a selection of nonfiction favorites that we recommend for those ready for reflection and contemplation. 




February marks the celebration of Black History Month, paying tribute and honoring the many generations of African Americans who often struggled with adversity but made significant contributions to our society and culture. I am happy to say that children’s literature is rich with a wonderful array of stories about inspiring African Americans to enlighten and encourage a new generation of readers. Here are just a few of the many titles we have in the store.

Caught In A Good Romance

The romance industry is large — more than half of the mass market paperbacks sold in the U.S. are romance — and its readership is vast and varied. The stereotyped image of romance readers was previously unmarried old women (with cats) chasing a happy ending on the page, however unrealistic it might be. Now that we know that people from all walks of life read romance, we can ponder the uptick in diversity? Well, in a time where so much is happening in the world, escapism in the form of solvable conflict and happy endings is a welcome reprieve.


Ah, resolutions. There’s something about a new year, especially one that begins a new decade, that makes us want to hit refresh on our lives. For many, actually tackling those resolutions can seem overwhelming. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together some books to support the journey of self-improvement. For five popular New Year’s resolutions, here are some titles we offer to give you a boost. And if your resolution is not on this list, stop in and let us suggest books that can help. Here’s to 2020!
