Shelf Help Episode #25
Not Christmas books!Our first question we've received that required clarification resulted in very unique interpretations this episode. The query arrived via instagram from Sara who wrote she needs books that help her in "getting away from the encroaching Christmas." When asked for clarification, she came back with - "Christmas dominates the popular narrative starting late fall, hard to get away from. Stories that aren't about Christmas or anti-Christmas are few and far between. I'm sure there's exciting new fiction or old comfort food stories that get 'the rest of us' through."Shelf Help is a podcast where booksellers help you answer one of life's trickier - and we’d argue extremely important - questions: what should you read next? If you've got a reading dilemma, you can email us a question or voice memo at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help your shelves.
