Praise for Read This!: Handpicked Favorites from America's Indie Bookstores…

Selected as the nonfiction pick in the Fall 2012 Great Lakes Great Reads by the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association!

"These professionals demonstrate exceptional curatorial care and a discernible passion for the art of bookselling, a craft Weyandt calls a 'combo platter of bartender/barista and priest.'[I]n sharing titles and ideas, handselling becomes, as bookseller and author Eowyn Ivey of Fireside Books remarks, 'a small but heartfelt gift, one reader to another.' Entertaining, informative, satisfying and fun—everything books should be."Kirkus

"I love this little book, and I think you might, too....I guarantee you'll come away with a whole slew of things on your 'to-read' list and a renewed affection and appreciation for your neighborhood bookslingers."-Knight Arts Blog

"[R]ead This! compiles. . .expertise of booksellers from all over the country into one cheerful red volume."-Los Angeles Times

"If books are conversations between people through the ages, then our booksellers are those keeping the communication alive. That's why Read This! is a deceptively powerful book."—The Rumpus, Interview with Hans Weyandt
