New Fiction for the New Year

Book Recommendations from Where the Sidewalk Ends

by Caitlin Doggart

After avid readers have gorged themselves on the hot holiday season titles of Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken and Mark Twain's Autobiography, the cold months of the New Year provide a great opportunity for indulging in new fiction titles.

Just as the Christmas wish lists were dominated by non-fiction this year in our bookstore, heavy strains of history, art, science, and real-life characters resurrected from ancillary historical roles run throughout most of the titles chosen here.

Each book outlined here is thought-provoking and entertaining and reason enough on its own to look forward to 2011!
