Clark and Lu's 2021 Reading List | Northshire Bookstore

Clark and Lu's 2021 Reading List

The breadth and width of the available selection of books is staggering. We are both interested in and compelled to read the books that our customers are reading and those new books which our buyers and publishers believe our customers will want to read upon release. The good kind of “homework” every day. The variety of genres we read covers bestsellers and little-known titles and includes Literary Fiction, History, Nonfiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Memoirs and Mystery. There are more new titles coming out each Tuesday so there is always a book (or 10) to look forward to and recommend. You can find a partial list of the books we’ve read in 2021 here. You might find your favorites here or some new favorites to seek out.

See you at the Northshire Bookstore!
