"Book Sense" Announces Books of the Year

What's Book Sense?
" is a family of independent-bookseller websites and is the e-commerce arm of the American Booksellers Association's Book Sense program." Independent bookstores (and we hope you know who and where they are in Connecticut) are those who just like public libraries, "share their love of books with their customers and their communities".

Nonfiction: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver
Children’s Literature: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The awards will be presented at the ABA’s annual Celebration of Bookselling, May 29, during BookExpo America.
