winter landscape

As the holiday season draws to a close and winter tightens its icy grip, it’s easy to come down with a case of the blues. But there’s hope yet! We can’t whisk you away to the beach or convince spring to arrive early, but we can give you something to look forward to—the new Winter 2016 edition of the Bas Bleu catalog, packed with plenty of books to while away the long, dark days.

Our editors have chosen a dozen of our particular favorites from the new batch to share with you here. Each title is well suited to sinking into for long stretches of time…or for helping you keep that new year’s resolution to “read more books!” For a brief plot “teaser,” hover your mouse pointer over the book cover; or, click on the image to read the full review  on our website, where you can explore all of our new offerings until our catalog arrives safely at your door. Happy reading, bluestockings, and happy new year!
