Gorgeous Classics

 

Reading “classic” books never goes out of style, and there are so many reasons customers come in looking for a new copy of an old favorite. Check out these gorgeous and affordable new editions:

How to Get Into. . . Lydia Millet

After the holidays, we all start with a little desire to do something different for the year ahead, even if we don't strictly call these changes "resolutions." And maybe the new thing you want to try is cracking open the book of an author with an overwhelming amount of work, which is where the Third Place Books staff steps in to help narrow down your options!

Anticipated Releases of 2023

We made it to the new year and the air is abuzz with exciting upcoming releases! Now that we’ve figured out our favorite books of 2022, and your favorite books of 2022, it’s finally time to look ahead. 

I asked Third Place booksellers what they’re anticipating in the new year and here were some of their answers: 

Third Place Books 2022 Bestsellers

Happy New Year everyone! We made it through 2022, and if you’re anything like us, you’re very excited for all the books coming up in 2023. But before we get into the books on the horizon, we thought it would be fun to look back at 2022. 

You already know all about our favorite books of the year, but what books did Third Place Books shoppers love this year? To answer that question, we dove into our records and made a list of the ten bestselling books that came out this year. 

2022 Audiobook Favorites

Audiobooks are my favorite way to pass the time on the way to work, and some books just lend themselves to audio production. They also make a great holiday gift!
 
In 2022 I made it through more than seventy audiobooks from Libro.fm. Here are the standouts: 
 

A Gift Guide for Book Lovers

Buying books for book lovers can be deceptively difficult! Sure, you can buy them a book off their wish list, but anyone can buy a book off someone’s wish list! We’re looking for something personal, something with a little bit more pizzazz. 

Here are some thoughtful gift ideas for the book lovers in your life. 

Reading in Winter

Reading in winter feels very different then reading in summer. Curling up to read in your most comfortable chair, with fuzzy socks, a big blanket, and a cup of your beverage of choice as day turns quickly to evening feels like the best possible pastime during the cold months. 

But what to read? We know what makes a great Beach Read, but what makes a great cold weather book?

In this booklist we’ll try to answer that question, and recommend some great, wintery books along the way!
 

Books We're Grateful For

There have been a number of books that have come into my life at the exact right moment over the years. Some of them have given me perspective I needed, or held my hand through uncomfortable transitions. I think many book lovers can relate to the relief of finding a book that reflects or illuminates exactly what one needs to see, and when that happens I for one am so grateful. 

Given the impending holiday, I asked Third Place booksellers what books they feel especially grateful for this season. 

Our Top 10 Books of 2022

It’s that time of year again! We asked everyone at all three Third Place Books locations for their 10 favorite books that came out in 2022, collected the hundreds of books we loved this year, and compiled the ten books that appeared on the most lists. 

So without further ado, here are the top ten books that Third Place Booksellers loved in 2022: 
 

Quick Recommendations: Spook Season!


Spook season is almost over, which means, for those of us who love to terrify ourselves, it’s time to dig deep and find the scariest books we can stand. To that end, I asked three booksellers to recommend, in a single sentence, a book that really spooked them.
