The Mr B’s Bookseller’s Dozen – August 2021
Welcome to the Mr B’s Bookseller’s Dozen, a new monthly list of books we’re really excited about!
The astute amongst you may have noticed that this is not a list of 12 books – booksellers, just like bakers, need more than 12 to make a dozen. Unlike bakers, we’re not content with just one extra! For each Bookseller’s Dozen we’ll provide you with a feast of 24 books released in the coming month, each introduced by a member of the team. You can view the August edition of the Mr B’s Bookseller’s Dozen just HERE.
We’ll aim to keep the books as diverse as possible, both in genre and representation, so we hope there’s something in there for every kind of reader. Naturally this list is far from exhaustive! There are hundreds of new books coming out each month, and we’re excited about so very many of them (they just won’t all fit on the page!).
We hope you’re as excited as we are about the wonderful books August has to offer, and as always, Happy Reading!
