What to read next?

Check out our Staff Picks in the links below, or by hovering over the menu tab toward the upper right of your screen labeled "What to Read Next." With ten voracious and very diverse readers currently working at the Norwich Bookstore, this converts to many different types of books being read and reviewed.

Beth's Picks Carin's Picks Kathryn's Picks Lisa C's Picks Sara's Picks
Brenna's Picks Jennifer's Picks Liza B's Picks Penny's Picks Susan's Picks


At the beginning of the month we each choose two or three current favorites to feature on our front display wall and post on this website and our facebook page. Some are new releases, some recent discoveries of older titles. We also encourage you to go to the IndieBound site for more selections from other independent booksellers across the country. And, of course, we love to discuss our choices with you and hear what you are reading!




This week in our newsletter, instead of a single staff pick, we compiled a list of titles that might help us make sense of the election and changes in our society... Please stop by and tell us what you are reading!
