It's the second week in January and the new car smell of the New Year has already worn thin.  Other than the blistering cold of a Michigan winter, the only excitement we can look forward to is the Library of Michigan's annual list of the books that we really should be reading.  From small presses to big publishers, these are the types of books that Michiganders can curl up under an afghan blanket on the couch and have their cockles thoroughly warmed.  Here are the 2015 winners:

Odds & Sods

In an odd twist of fate, I found myself rooting for the Ohio State Buckeyes during the National Football Championship last night.  My motives were not entirely altruistic.  I reasoned that we would sell a lot more OSU books than Oregon Ducks ones, and as a final lie to myself, it would make the B1G look better on a national level.  The two titles we will be stocking are Next Man Up: The Ohio State 2015 National Champions (9781629370576) 14.95 paper and Against All Odds: The Road to the Buckeyes 8th National Championship (9781940056166) 24.95 hardcover.  We are expecting both titles on either Thursday or Friday.  Backorders are starting to pile up . . .
