Must Reads Of 2010: Vermont Edition’s Winter Reading Show

Print More

The snow’s falling, the temperature’s dropping, and it’s the perfect time of year to curl up on the couch in front of a fire (if you’re lucky) with a good book. And with just weeks left to go in 2010, it’s time to take stock of the best
books of the year. Thursday is Vermont Edition’s winter reading show.  We’ll hear the voices of local authors reading from their new books and get the scoop from some local booksellers about what’s flying off the shelves. Ana McDaniel, manager of The Book Cellar in Brattleboro and Stan Hynds of Northshire Bookstore will join us. 

And we want to hear
from you. What new books did you devour this year?  What are you recommending to anyone who will listen?

Help us continue to build our winter reading list by posting below.
