Contactless pickup and browse & borrow are here! Yes, we can now check out print books again!  To view how contactless pickup and browse & borrow work, visit our website, here. While we love ebooks and all the awesome digital collections the Virtual Livingston Library offers, there is nothing like snuggling up with a good print novel.

Here are some books in print for the book lover inside all of us.

index (3)The Bookish Life on Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

We read this novel in the library’s in person Bookish Vibes book club and even had the opportunity to Skype with the author!  This novel is about Nina, a true bibliophile who works in a bookshop and loves to play trivia.  When Nina discovers that her father (whom she never had the opportunity to meet) has passed away, she discovers something that can be just as important to her  as books – family.

index (8)The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin

Fionna Skinner is a famous poet.  At a reading, she is asked to tell the story behind her most iconic piece of work.  Thus the audience and the reader both become immersed in a summer the poet lived many years ago, set in a small Connecticut town.

index (4)The Lost for Words Bookshop by Stephanie Butland

Loveday would choose books over people on just about any day.  Fifteen years ago, Loveday experienced a tragedy which caused her to lose everything dear to her on one unspeakable night.  Now she spends her days in her place of solace- the bookshop.

index (5)The Bookshop on the Shore by Jenny Colgan

Zoe is a single mother living in London with rent that just seems to keep increasing.  At her aunt’s suggestion she decides to move to Scotland and help run a little bookshop.  The city to the highlands is quite the change of scenery for Zoe, but as she begins to discover friendship and a new life, it might just be the change she always needed.

index (6)The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson

Miranda always loved her uncle’s bookstore.  She grew up in between stacks of towering stories and in between pages of characters and words.  After her uncle passes, Miranda inherits the bookstore.  It’s a novel about self discovery, family secrets, and reading.

index (7)Love, Overdue by Pamela Morsi

Okay, this book might be a little bit cliche, but I adore this cute romance novel set in a library.  My favorite part?  The chapters start with corresponding Dewey Decimal numbers!

What’s your favorite bookish read?
