If you didn't get enough books over the holidays...

Twenty titles chosen by booksellers for the 2009 Indie Next Lists in hardcover—and now available in paperback format—are highlighted in our end-of-year list Presenting Paperbacks. In fiction, biography & memoir, mystery and nonfiction, you can find several books on which to spend your indie bookstore gift cards!

If that's not enough book coverage, NPR audio stories on IndieBound.org book info pages have recently featured lists of fantastic titles. Don't miss Season's Readings, with recommendations from indie booksellers at Milwaukee's Boswell Book Company, The BookMark in Atlantic Beach, FL, and Portrait of a Bookstore in Studio City, CA.

More excellent recommendations come from librarian Nancy Pearl's 2009 Under-The-Radar Books, featuring the excellent Liar by Justine Larbalestier, the 10 Best Cookbooks of 2009, with the delicious Mastering the Art of Chinese Cooking, Maureen Corrigan's Best Books of 2009, featuring several Indie Next List titles of this year, and Alan Cheuse's Book Picks to Warm a Winter's Night—although American Fantastic Tales is giving me the chills.

Happy reading and Happy New Year!



December 2009 Indie Next List

Out now, the Indie Next List for December!

Listen to NPR stories on HIlary Mantel's new Tudor-era novel Wolf Hall, Barbara Ehrenreich's Bright-Sided, and Pops, Terry Teachout's biography of Louis Armstrong.

And just in time for the holidays, we have a video from economist Joel Waldfogel on his book Scroogenomics, discussing why buying gifts is a wasteful "orgy of value destruction." But personally I think books are the best gifts, and, as even Waldfogel points out, they're not that expensive!

Ha Jin's A Good Fall, Stephen King's Under the Dome, Alice Munro's Man Booker prize-winning Too Much Happiness, and Jim Lahey's "bread book to end all bread books" My Bread are just a few of the potential gifts on December's Indie Next List.

And even Scrooges can commiserate with the likes of John Waters and Robert Benchley in The Dreaded Feast.

Find the printed list at an independent bookstore near you. We're also offering a print-at-home version, found on the Indie Next List page directly beneath the carousel of titles, so you can read at home and take it to your local indie. Happy reading and happy holidays!
