Books to Give as Gifts this Holiday Season

by Donna Huber

I've read some really great books this year. Many of them I would recommend you buy for the book lover on your holiday gift list, both adults and kids. Since I listened to a lot more audiobooks this year, I'm grouping them into their own category. With Amazon giving $5 off book purchases of $20 or more until 11:59 pm PT on December 21, now is the time to check the readers off your list. Use Promo Code GIFTBOOK18 at checkout.

Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I met Pat Conroy at three different book signings.  He always gave an interesting and hilarious talk about his current book and then took the time to talk with every person who wanted a book signed and wrote a personal remark in each book.  He was my favorite author and I was saddened when he died in 2016 knowing that his creative gifts and love of language would be silenced.  I really believe that Prince of Tides should have been one of the 100 Great American Books for the PBS series.  Or Beach Music, The Great Santini, South of Broad - all of them are worthy of being included in the list of 100 great American books.

All the Lives We Never Lived by Anuradha Roy ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

First chapter, first paragraph
When I saw All the Lives We Never Lived at NetGalley, I was drawn to it for a few reasons. 1. It was set in India and I can't recall ever reading a book set in India. 2. The author is Indian and I've been trying to read more international literature. 3. It mentioned WWII in the description and I haven't read any WWII novels set outside of Europe and the U.S. Basically I wanted to read it because it was different than what I normally read.

The Surgeon by John Pence ~ a Review #MondayBlogs

by MK French

In a post-apocalyptic world, Dr. Jenny Hanover often trades her skills as a doctor and surgeon for a place to stay, meals and tools. With the way that the world is, she is just as skilled with a sword as a scalpel and prefers to be on the move at all times. She wants to stay away from the violence in the eastern seaboard of the US, and would rather take off.
