This Friday, December 22nd, stop by Brilliant Books from 1 - 3 pm and meet authors Janet Borgerson & Jonathan Schroeder!  Their book, Designed for Hi-Fi living, examines what we can learn from the LPs of postwar America—not only their music, but also the album art and liner notes.  An autographed copy makes a great Christmas gift for music-lovers who'd rather have the LP!

The Top Ten Most Brilliant Books of the Decade!

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary this weekend, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to look back over this past decade and that books that have helped shape that time for us. 

We wanted to include the titles our booksellers read and loved and couldn't wait to share, books whose authors we supported and celebrated, and books that helped redefine their genres or created something entirely new.  As you can imagine, as we thought back over the past ten years, that list got longer and longer! 

Though it wasn't easy to narrow them down to just ten, we managed it in the end, creating a list that's a fitting tribute to our first ten years.
