Looking For Holiday Gift? NPR's Book Concierge To The Rescue
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
And here's a place where you can find plenty of stories. NPR's Book Concierge is back. Think of it as sort of like an online matchmaker for readers. Many of my colleagues, book critics and other staff who like to read have picked their favorite books published in 2015. There are cookbooks, comic books, books for teens, books for kids. There's a category called the dark side. There are biographies. There's poetry. There's sci-fi. Don't be overwhelmed, though. You can use a filter to weed out what doesn't interest you and really focus on what suits your mood. The Book Concierge will even locate your nearest public library and tell you if the book you're after is on the shelf. And there is an app to help you with all of this. You can find out a lot more at npr.org/bestbooks.
