May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

This month is dedicated to Mental Health Awareness. That sounds great, but what exactly does it mean? And what can we really do to help raise awareness, beat stigma, and help those who are suffering?

Edgy Fiction - A Look at Our Newest Table

I am not a patient reader. I am not a reader willing to give authors time to get into a novel. I want something immediate. Skip the lush language and give me something that sticks. This may make me a “bad” reader; I usually give up on books in the first 20 pages, but it’s who I am. Make something happen. This is why I am drawn to the darker side of literary fiction, perhaps the taboo. There’s a risk taking in subject matter that propels the work (whether handled well is a different discussion) and I want to see where they take the subject, hopefully not just for shock value.

MILKMAN Wins National Book Critics Circle Awards

Last week our adult book buyer and co-owner Lori Feathers traveled to New York City as a board member and judge for the National Book Critics Circle Awards. The award for fiction was given to Irish author Anna Burns for her novel, MILKMAN. Here is Lori's appreciation of the novel which was read to a packed audience of publishers and authors. 

Why Read YA?

I usually get looks when I am out reading, or when I talk about my most beloved section in the store. The sort of quizzical stares usually reserved for such questions as “Why?” or “Still?” are often cast my way. The idea that an adult woman would still be reading in the Young Adult section doesn’t sit right with a surprising amount of people. So I find myself spending many rainy bookstore days contemplating possible reasons for that, and thinking about my own reasons for being an avid consumer of YA lit.
