Holiday Cheer 2018

At, we've been celebrating the holiday season in style with our Holiday Cheer Contests and Feature. As our gift to you, we've been spotlighting a book and giving five lucky readers a chance to win it.

Although the contests have ended, we encourage you to take a look at this year's featured titles. These are books you'll want to read during the holidays --- and throughout the new year as well!

Week of October 8, 2018

Paperback releases for the week of October 8th include MERRY AND BRIGHT by Debbie Macomber, a delightful holiday novel of first impressions and second chances; DARE NOT LINGER, the long-awaited second volume of Nelson Mandela’s memoirs, left unfinished at his death but now completed by acclaimed South African writer Mandla Langa; MRS. OSMOND, in which John Banville continues the story of Isabel Archer, the young protagonist of Henry James’ beloved THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY; and THE RIVER OF CONSCIOUSNESS, a collection of essays that displays the late Oliver Sacks' passionate engagement with the most compelling ideas of human endeavor --- evolution, creativity, memory, time, consciousness and experience.
