Largehearted WORD Books of the Week - September 25, 2013

In the Largehearted Word series, the staff of Brooklyn's WORD bookstore highlights several new books released this week.

WORD is an independent neighborhood bookstore in Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of Brooklyn, that recently celebrated its sixth anniversary. Our primary goal is to be whatever our community needs us to be, which currently means carrying a lot of paperback fiction (especially classics), cookbooks, board books, and absurdly cute cards and stationery. In addition, we're fiends for a good event, from the classic author reading and Q&A to potlucks and a basketball league (and anything set in a bar). We're a small operation, just 1000 square feet and four people, but we read too much, so it all works out. If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbookstores.

WORD also hosts the monthly Largehearted Lit reading series, featuring authors who participated in this blog's Book Notes series and musical guests.


A Thousand Mornings

A Thousand Mornings
by Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver's new collection of poetry studies, in detail, the things we often overlook: leaves, quiet, the ocean, our hearts.


Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
by Robin Sloan

There is something odd about Mr. Penumbra's bookstore, and Clay Jannon, a new employee, wants to find out just what's going on beyond it's shelves. This is the perfect book for bibliophiles and adventure lovers alike.


Countdown

Countdown

Weisman travels to various countries to ask questions about how we can help ensure our continued survival on Earth.
