We lose ourselves in books; We find ourselves there too. We don’t know who said it, but we truly believe in the saying above. We have lost ourselves in numerous books this year. Books are our happy place; our escape; sometimes our refuge. It’s always a pleasure to discover a “new” author and to reconnect with favorite ones. We were super excited as The Latina Book Club started putting together its 4th Annual List of Books of the Year for 2016. Readers will love these exciting, daring, gripping books by Latino authors and about Latinos in all genres, and some in two languages. We encourage everyone to support our authors by buying their books and telling all their friends and neighbors about the books. Remember that books make great gifts year round, and do consider giving books to your local library. For this new year, explore a new author, a new genre. All learning is good. And, who knows? Maybe you’ll find yourself in one of these books too. Happy Reading.
