If there’s anything that beats curling up with a book on a cold night, maybe it’s the reassurance that your book of choice won’t waste your money or your time. For these reasons, plus the simple gift-giving savvy behind it, NPR’s Book Concierge sounds intriguing.
It’s free and has been around a few years, so you can check out older recommendations, too. You can use filters to narrow down your interests.
There are a couple of curious, even amusing, book categories in there. How about “Realistic Fiction” or “Rather Long”? You can even scout out books specifically recommended for book clubs.
