The Book in Room 316
by ReShonda Tate Billingsley

Four different characters find themselves drawn to the Markham Hotel, in search of solace, of respite, or perhaps just a temporary hiding place.

Billingsley is famous for writing inspirational novels with a raw honesty that keeps them feeling current.

The Dirty Book Club
by Lisi Harrison

MJ thought she had it all, until her New York magazine career fell apart and her “reboot” plan—moving in with her doctor boyfriend in a small California beach town—doesn’t pan out the way she thought it would. Her only friend is the octogenarian next door, Gloria, but she soon disappears, leaving MJ an invitation to a book club at which they read only erotic novels. MJ and the other club members soon go from bondage to bonding, and discover that even a dirty book has lessons to teach them.

The Book of Joe
by Jonathan Tropper

When you’re an author who hits it big with a scathing novel about growing up in his small town, you don’t come home again. Until your dad has a stroke, and you have to return to face the music. Now Joe Goffman is struggling with writer’s block, dodging the copies of his book the local library group keeps throwing at his house, and trying to make amends. Think Nick Hornby or Jennifer Weiner—this hilarious and poignant novel will suck you in from the very first page.

The Book of Joe
Jonathan Tropper

After high school, Joe Goffman left his hometown of Bush Falls without looking back. Then he wrote a novel savaging everything and everyone he knew, a novel that became a massive bestseller and hit movie. Fifteen years later, when he’s forced to return home for a family emergency, he’s public enemy number one—but as he reconnects with old friends and remembers what made the place home, he realizes that the best things in life might be second chances.

The Library Book
by Susan Orlean

From the “truth is stranger than fiction” files comes this compelling true history by the author of The Orchid Thief (which of course went on to inspire Charlie Kaufman’s Adaptation, the movie embodiment of our book-on-book theme): in April 1986, a fire started in the Los Angeles Public Library. It burned for seven hours, ultimately consuming or damaging over a million books. Orlean uses this catastrophe as a jumping-off point to explore the way libraries are essential parts of our communities…and explores the rumors that the LAPL fire was arson. A true homage to the importance of books in our lives.
