Life from Above by Michael Bright & Chloe Sarosh

This collection of spectacular images reveals our planet as we’ve never seen it before. Utilizing satellite images, locations that were previously too remote or could only be seen from space are revealed—including newly formed islands born from volcanic eruptions and turtles traveling on ocean currents. Still photographs from the ground—from Bangladesh to Florida—complete this stunning look at the true colors of our planet.

Running with Sherman by Christopher McDougall

I am obsessed with Sherman the donkey and his crazy story of becoming a marathoner with his human, the great runner and writer Christopher McDougall. After he is rescued from an abusive owner, Sherman’s new family and the larger rural community surrounding his new home come together to save his life and introduce him to the joys of life, friends, and running. If you’re looking for a feel-good book this holiday season, this is one you’ll want to check out. - Jax

If you knew your time was up and you only had one more drink at the bar while the closing song played, what would you order?

Full of stories, recipes, and tips on where to go after last call. - Jax

Nothing Fancy by Alison Roman

Alison Roman (Dining In) could hardly be hotter in the culinary world (social media superstar, creator of viral cookie recipe, food columnist for the New York Times), and her new cookbook is getting all the buzz. In Nothing Fancy, Roman shares recipes for having people over (not entertaining, she notes) that are easy to execute and will make friends, neighbors, or whoever stops by, very happy. I don’t know if there’s a recipe that will go viral (maybe the Grilled Carrots with Limey Hot Sauce?), but there’s plenty to get excited about in these pages. -S.B.

Jubilee by Toni Tipton-Martin

African American cooking is almost always covered as soul food, and yet its history is much richer, more varied, and deeper than that one part of it. In the hands of Toni Tipton-Martin, author of the essential The Jemima Code, the history of this food unfolds as one of skill and ingenuity, adaptation and inspiration. “Equal parts historical highlight reel and cookbook, Jubilee captures centuries’ worth of joy, pain, and effort from Black chefs across the diaspora and distills them into recipes that carefully guide and educate.” —Bon Appetit

Olive, Again

Fans of Strout’s Olive Kitteridge will be thrilled with this follow-up. Olive remains as brutally honest and irritable as ever, her world packed with complexities that befuddle and amuse her. The genius of Strout’s juicy prose is found in her characters and how their stories illustrate what it is to be human: vulnerable, sweet, disappointing, heartbreaking, heartwarming. We recognize ourselves and our neighbors in these stories—and maybe our book group members, too! —Jennifer Wood, Bookshop Ambassador

Beekeepers of Aleppo

How do you see? How do you see strength? Evil? Resilience? Tragedy? Hope? Hopelessness? Love? Lefteri asks these questions in The Beekeeper of Aleppo. This story is about a young man, Uri, his wife Afra, and their escape from war-torn Aleppo. They experience the unimaginable loss of war and it’s up to Uri to get all he has left—his wife—to the safety of the UK. Uri and Afra are gentle people and so is the book. It doesn’t hide the horrors the two suffer, but the revelations of these atrocities are veiled and tragic, not bloody or graphic. The text reflects Uri’s spirit and perspective. Lefteri spent time volunteering in refugee camps and has worked with refugees in the UK. Her deep knowledge of their plight, both acute and long term, has produced an empathetic account of survival and love. This is a must-read.  —Judi Heher, Bookshop Ambassador

Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III

Former military cadet, survivor, and lesbian Kate Kane stalks a new criminal High Madame that could only have come out of Gotham in Elegy, one of the best superhero stories I've ever read. Greg Rucka's art is nothing short of beautiful, with breathtaking action sequences and humanizing flash backs, and Williams' story will keep you hooked. - Jocelyn

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

I was nervous about this one. Sequels can either be exciting and fulfilling, or a total let down, and I didn’t want to lose any love for the story of Gilead and its people. Thankfully, The Testaments delivers on the promise The Handmaid’s Tale makes. It’s full of all the grace, wit, and feminism we’ve come to expect from Atwood, and on top of that, it's a roaring good story. - Jess
