Indie Picks of the Month

Every month Indiebound picks a top book for its Next List.  
These books are specially selected by people who are truly 
passionate about reading -- independent booksellers.  
Below is a list of their monthly selections (from mid-2008 till present).  
I've linked each title to the book's page on the Indiebound website 
(and snatched their covers, too) so that you can browse around.

Happy Reading!
