The days are getting shorter and the nights are cool and clear. It's the perfect time of year to grab a good book and spend some quality armchair time before the holiday madness sets in. This week, we have something to suit every taste.
We were delighted to see Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis in the store this month—their latest collaboration, The Whiz Mob and the Grenadine Kid, is a wonderful story for smart young readers. On the adult side of things, Andy Weir is back with his follow-up to his 2011 smash hit The Martian. It's called Artemis, and it's brimming with more of the science, heart, and humor that made you fall in love with his first book. If space isn't your bag, check out Mrs. Osmond by John Banville. It's a clever continuation of Henry James' The Portrait of a Lady, and it earned the prestigious Alice Seal of Approval. We've got plenty more to pique your fancy, too—we suggest reading 'em all.
