Holiday Cheer 2016

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 31, 2016

Paperback releases for the week of October 31st include Carly Simon's memoir BOYS IN THE TREES, which reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the co-founder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, and ultimately delving into her meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song "You're So Vain"; ORPHAN X, the opening installment of Gregg Hurwitz's series that introduces readers to Evan Smoak, aka the Nowhere Man, whose personal mission it is to help those with nowhere else to turn; THE GEOGRAPHY OF GENIUS, which finds Eric Weiner traveling the world to show how creative genius flourishes in specific places at specific times; and KNITTING PEARLS, a volume edited by Ann Hood in which two dozen writers write about the transformative and healing powers of knitting.
