BEACH READS FOR AUGUST

As summer draws to a close, I wanted to recommend several recently released paperback books, all different styles and subjects but each sharing a large readership. Select a few to take with you to the beach, or just enjoy them on a lazy Sunday curled up in your favorite recliner. 

#WallyReads

Call me Wally. (Can you tell that I like Moby Dick?)

I’m a mini Aussie Labradoodle and, at three, am pretty advanced for my age. Maybe that’s why I’ve been chosen to be the Gramercy Books mascot! (My adoptive mom also happens to be the owner.) I love stories and I have my very own favorite picks called #WallyReads!

 

TIME AND TIMING

Lyrics from Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like an Eagle” keep running through my head. “Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future…” If you’re like me, you feel there’s not enough time in the day and that time passes far too quickly. Daniel Pink’s latest book, WHEN: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, more than piqued my curiosity. 

INSPIRATION!

Merriam Webster’s definition for inspiration is as follows: “the action or power of moving intellect or emotions.” That describes what happens inside the walls of an independent bookstore each and every day. It also describes what we mean at Gramercy Books when we say: “find inspiration here.” 

SHELF TALKERS: FIND IT HERE

Now entering our second year, Gramercy Books’ “find it here” mantra couldn’t be more appropriate. While we carry bestsellers and all the recent releases, we also focus on curating inventory that allow customers to discover both emerging authors and unexpected titles. Our shelf talkers, written by a knowledgeable staff—all passionate about books—help customers “find it here.”

KAZUO ISHIGURO: AN EMOTIONAL FORCE

As a young boy, Kazuo Ishiguro uncovered Sherlock Holmes stories in the local library. His subsequent writing journey has been nothing short of adventurous––revealing extraordinary range, playing with genres like detective fiction (When We Were Orphans), science fiction (Never Let Me Go) and fantasy (The Buried Giant) and tackling big themes like the fallibility of memory, mortality, war and love.
