Preorder your copy today! An interesting historical novel about the first East Indian to come to the United States.
I loved this Sci-Fi book, the first in a series! Action-packed with twists and not too much worldbuilding ... perfect combo for me!
It's hard for me to express why I loved this book. There's not too much action in the book, so I think I just loved the writing. It's thoughtful, and I liked the flawed characters.
So fun! Tight writing, huge twist at the end, and an engaging story! Loved it on audiobook from Libro.fm.
Such a wonderful business book! I love the restaurant business, so I enjoyed this book, but there's so much that works for all businesses. Hiring, empowerment, and more!
I love reading books about hospitals and the amazing staff who work in them! This did not disappoint! I learned so much about the ER, procedures, and how thoughtfulness plays into it all.
The first cookbook in a long time that I want to buy and use weekly! The Tom Kha soup, Blueberry Baked French Toast, and other recipes really were slam-dunks and turned out well!
Another winner from Blake Crouch! Gene-editing, suspense, post-apocalyptic ... what more can you ask for?
I love to fish, but I'm not great at catching. So, I read about other people catching fish and their obsession. This book has led me to watching countless tarpon fishing videos on youtube.com. Help me!
I picked up this book because I saw it was partially set in Oregon, and I loved the title. It certainly didn't take long to get invested in the each character and their outcome. So many delights and sorrows for some of the characters. I certainly had my favorites, and I worried so intensely for Malik, Laila, and so many others. Beautiful writing captured the essence of the scenery and character! Imagine my surprise and love for the final chapter ... and my heartbreak!
I love this graphic novel series! Funny puns and little jokes within the drawings! This is a series you can read over and over!
I love Molly Gilbert's other book "One Pan & Done," so this was the book for me to preorder as soon as I saw it coming out! She doesn't disappoint!
Wow. Every high school kiddo should read this book. In fact, everyone should read this book, and then do something from the list in the back to get involved! An incredible book!
Email or call for price.
A perfect read for fishers, non-fishers, or natural history buffs! Set partly on the Deschutes River near the Warm Springs Reservation. As a fisher, I really enjoyed this book from the opening sentence. Makes me want to fish all summer long and soak in the surrounding nature.
Nerd out on this book about breathing and drive your partner crazy with the facts. Oh, that's just me! I thought this book was super interesting! It's one of those books you read a paragraph and then tell the person next to you what you just read.
Well, now I know what dopesick is and why you want to avoid having it. Such a terrible and terrifying account of drugs and the effects of them in communities and families. A good book!
One of our customers mentioned this book to me, and I'm so glad they did! A fast read that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. It should be required reading for everyone in my opinion. The last chapter is incredible, and I loved learning about search and rescue.
Everyone should read this book! It's not just a book for older people. Young people need to prep and be ready for a unexpected situation. How do you want to live your life? What matters the most as you age? This book invites readers to consider all kinds of possibilities. I bought this book for my parents and both of my brothers ... looking forward to the conversations after they read it.
