“Indie Next” Book Recommendations for December

Yum, yum, lots of interesting and eclectic books to try on! Exploring this list of independent bookseller’s favorites is sort of like stumbling into a small neighborhood bakery, and finding a treasure trove of unusual treats.

Indie Bound is a community of independent local bookstores. They offer monthly newsletters and book recommendations that might be a bit out of the mainstream, and they urge readers to support the smaller, independent bookstores. Like your own beloved small library!
