"I did not want to put this book down," shared an excited reader. "I loved how she broke the book up by each person telling their story in pieces. I continued to read because I needed to know what a happened to each character. They each pulled you in and made you feel attached to them. It was interesting to try and put the pieces together between each of their stories and the Handmaids Tale."


Olive Kitteridge: Fiction

This Pulitzer Prize winner about a middle-age math teacher in a quiet New England town is so captivating (with 7,000 five-star reviews) it's now an HBO series.

"Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteridge is one of the best novels I've read in a while," shared a captivated reader. "To write the individual stories and then put them together to form a novel that tells Olive's story of the human condition and that of others in her small Maine town is a new way of perceiving a novel for me."


All Creatures Great and Small

This New York Times bestseller is a witty and heartwarming story from a seasoned veterinarian in rural England. It inspired a BBC series and won over more than 9,000 five-star fans.
$7 at Amazon

"I read this book several years ago and decided to read it again," wrote a rave reviewer. "It is as wonderful as I remember. I laughed and cried throughout the book. Love all the stories about the animals and the human who owned them and in some cases loved them."


'Just One Damned Thing After Another' by Jodi Taylor

$5$13Save $8

$5 at Amazon

Follow Dr. Madeleine Maxwell's adventures after being accepted to Britain's St Mary's Institute of Historical Research, where she relives history in the most madcap ways. This one's just $5!

"Most of us understand the disappointment of a book that promises 'laugh out loud' moments then fails to deliver. This book not only delivers but does so in almost a machine gun fashion — over and over again before you have the chance to recover from the previous," wrote someone who previously was not a fan of historical fiction. "As trite as it sounds, I picked up Book One and couldn't put it down. I eagerly pushed through the rest of the books and the collection of short stories in less than a week."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
