One Great Book

Our Souls at Night

September 27, 2019

In his final novel Our Souls at Night, Kent Haruf reflects on love, happiness, and the small moments that make up a life; its bittersweet story lingers long after the final page.   


Readers, great books stay with us long after we turn the last page. My book, I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life, celebrates the staying power of such books, reading under the covers with a flashlight, organizing your bookshelves, and finding your book people. This perfectly giftable essay collection makes a great teacher gift, stocking stuffer, or hostess thank-you. I’d Rather Be Reading is available wherever you get your books.
