If you come by the store you'll notice some "Shelf-talkers" next to some of the books, recommendations from CGB staff and customers, a way to get the literary discussion rolling.
Here are a couple:
For The Dog Says How by Kevin Kling:
This is a sweet, insightful and very droll collection of tales by a fine Minnesota story-teller. They range from boy scouts and taxidermy, Casey Jones and Roundhouse Rodney, to living with a disability, and the newspaper clipping your dad sends when he finds out you've chosen a career he finds suspect. Charming.
For American Bloomsbury by Susan Cheever:
Taking a family road trip to New England? I wish I'd had this when I went on a trip East with the fam long ago. Great insights into the incredible intellectual community that was Concord.
If you've read anything good lately and feel like making a recommendation, stop by and get it on the shelf.
