Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s definitely been an eventful week, but our booksellers know the perfect way to unwind: a great new book to read! Check out the page below to see which pages they’ve been turning this week.

9781984856029-1A Swim in a Pond in the Rain by George Saunders

I’ve read almost every short story and essay (and his one novel!) George Saunders has published, but his latest is a real treat. In A Swim in a Pond in the Rain is a one-of-a-kind piece of work. Not only does he deliver a mini seminar-in-book-form on the Russian short story, he also imparts advice on life and writing, and provides funny/insightful critique on the stories featured in this volume (a selection by Tolstoy, Gogol, Turgenev and Chekhov). A truly splendid, mystical blend that you can reference and enjoy more than once!

9781974710027Jujutsu Kaisen by Akutami Geke
When Yuji Itadori and his friends stumble across a maleficent relic, he is plunged head-first into a world of curses and Jujutsu sorcerers. He suddenly is attending a new high school for Jujutsu sorcerers in training, while balancing the fact that the Lord of Curses is now a part of him. The darker moments of this manga are balanced out by hilarious characters that come together to create an altogether irresistible story.
