Kittehs. As a former historian and art critic, this book gives the kittehs the attention we deserve. So interesting. So striking. So worshipful. Impress me, impressionists! Bow down, Banksy! [Herbert]

I am a sucker for any Mary Oliver book, and in this collection of selected poems she's picked her own best works. It's a unique peek into the mind of one of my favorite poets. The poems are also fluid and beautiful. [Karen]

I spend a lot of time looking for poetry that does something to me like what this book did to me: punched holes in my heart, stunned me with its beauty, pushed me closer to knowing what we've thought over for too long. It handles deftly race and identity, what it is to be human, and even the complexity of texting in these modern days. [Kenny]

There is only one thing I love almost as much as bookstores and that's The Library. This book is the perfect celebration of that perfect place. Like a library, this book is quiet but full of life, filled with imagination and fun. "I like books and they like me." [Kenny]

I'm a junkie for women's sports ever since I watched the 1999 Women's World Cup final. I picked this up originally for Mia Hamm, but there's so many unsung heroes in here! The illustrations are so fun and it's packed with facts. Meet awesome athletes from soccer and roller derby to skydiving! [Karen]

It can be delightful to stumble across someone's quirky obsession. With Vol. II, we can firmly commit to being obsessed ourselves. Even more perfect than Vol. I, it is history, art appreciation, and travelogue, connecting us with their beauty and substance. [Raissa]
