October was Dyslexia Awareness Month, but it's something that we as booksellers are particularly attuned to all year round. It's estimated that 70-80% of people with reading difficulties have some form of dyslexia, but we believe that everyone can find books and stories that work for the way their brains process language. Here are some recommendations and resources for dyslexic young readers and the grown ups who support their dreams!
It's hard to believe, but this October marks twelve years since we moved Brilliant Books from our little blue store in Suttons Bay to our beautiful downtown location right here in Traverse City. To celebrate, we've been sharing some top twelve lists from those years. You've seen our twelve bestselling staff favorites, twelve books we can always count on, and now, we're sharing this year's top twelve bestselling books for twelve-year-olds!
We've already shared some of our top teen books for spooky season, but we felt that list didn't give the graphic novels their due, so we've created a whole new list to remedy that. Some of these graphic novels are old favorites, some are newly released, and there are even a few that haven't officially hit shelves yet, but together they span the full range from slightly spooky to totally terrifying. Which will you add to your TBR?
