What Are You Waiting For?

The paperback?

Makes sense. Paperbacks, cheaper and lighter, outsell their hardcover predecessors by a considerable margin. Quite a few of my favorite books have been reissued in softcover since I wrote about them. If you’re looking for excellent, portable reading matter, consider one of these:

A.S. Byatt, The Children’s Book

Tom Rachman, The Imperfectionists

Joseph Kanon, Stardust

Tad Friend, Cheerful Money

Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

David Ebershoff, The Nineteenth Wife

Elizabeth George, This Body of Death (January 24)

 

About carolwallace

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.
