My lovely wife Beth and I own and operate--proprietors makes us sound more classy than we really are--a cluttered, diverse and independent bookstore in Central Pennsylvania. After well over 20 years, we are still not sure what to say when people ask if our shop is a "Christian bookstore." I do a monthly book review column over at our website; we hope that these new blogged bits will afford friends and customers the chance to see other books I happen to be reading, wishing to read, pretending that I read or at least believe that others should, if not read, know about. We have three children, attend a Presbyterian church in York, PA and have no hobbies.

Novels we've loved this year

Novels. We love to talk about what we are enjoying and all our staff have their recent favorites. At the monthly column at the Hearts & Minds website, we have a nice essay describing a few of the recent stories we've read. There are some truly wonderful novels, fiction that deserves to be known. See our reviews there, and add a few comments here at the blog. What would be your pick for best novel so far this year? Have you heard of the ones we've reviewed here? Join the conversation and let us know. Thanks.
