What's New On the Shelf

I've been back to my book-buying ways this past week. Here's what I added to the shelf!

Christopher Castellani read to a packed house at the bookstore a couple of weeks ago. I missed the event but couldn't pass on All This Talk of Love, an Italian-American family story. Sold!

During the recent snowstorm I cuddled up with the movie version of Diana Wynn Jones' classic children's fantasy Howl's Moving Castle. One of my coworkers at the store loves this book, so I decided to give it a try.

Finally, I've always wanted to read Lust for Life, Irving Stone's fictional biography of Vincent Van Gogh. One of my coworkers chose it as her staff pick for February and we have a nice edition of it, so I couldn't resist.

I love it when booksellers and customers sell me on books. The best part of working in a bookstore is the community and sharing great books with each other!
