Weird Summer Reading 2017

We can see summer over the horizon. Thus begins one of our favorite activities of the year: coming up with summer reading lists. You can organize summer reading lists by age (as we do for young readers every year so look forward to that), genre, theme, beach-readability, historical era, historical event, author, or even what kind of summer you want to have, like a relaxing summer or an adventurous summer or a romantic summer, or whatever. Well, if you’re one of the handful of people out there hoping to have a weird summer, you’ve come to the right place.

Announcing Be the Change

Be the Change LogoWe used to know exactly what it meant to be a bookstore in Cambridge, MA. We stocked books, ordered books, talked about books, and hosted book events. We had responsibilities, we had an identity, and even though very little is easy about bookselling, we knew how to be a bookstore. But things changed. Regardless of your political opinions, we are now living in a different and more tumultuous world.

Feminism for Middle Readers

Yesterday we had a request for recommended books on feminism for middle grade readers. (Thanks, Camille!) It turned out that we had tons of ideas, but they all came from the YA section. Now that we've had some more time to think about it, we've put together a collection -- broad, but not exhaustive -- of resources for readers who embrace feminism, but aren't quite ready for bell hooks, Simone de Beauvoir, or even Here We Are, a new anthology for teen readers.
