Across the country this month, schoolbuses are rolling through the streets and backpack-laden youngsters are headed back to school. And while we don’t miss the days of cafeteria lunches and mid-term exams, we do find ourselves nostalgic for getting grades just for sitting around reading a book. So in the spirit of back-to-school reading, our editors have chosen a dozen of our favorite books from Bas Bleu’s new Autumn 2017 edition—due in mailboxes this week!—for bibliophiles who read not because the teacher told you to, but because you love it!

We’re also offering a little “extra credit” for you, our wonderful readers: 10% off any of the books featured in this blog post! Just enter code BBBLOG in the “coupon code” box of your shopping cart checkout. (For our Bas Bleu Society members, that 10% discount is in addition to the 15% discount you already receive!) This special discount expires at 11:59 p.m. on August 27, 2017, so don’t be tardy! For a brief plot “teaser” about each of the books we’ve selected hover your mouse pointer over the book cover; or, click on the image to read the full review on our website. And if you’d like to receive our catalog in the mail, you can request a copy here. Happy reading, bluestockings!
