On Display: Best Books of 2012

It just wouldn’t feel like a new year here at the Bentley Library if we didn’t put together our annual Best Books display.  We’ve spent the past few months poring over our favorite reviewers’ year-end lists (The New York Times, NPR, Amazon and The Wall Street Journal, to name a few) to bring you our largest best books display ever – over 200 titles in both print and audiobook format.

Best Books of 2012As you might assume, the display features insanely popular books that have received numerous accolades, but it also includes many titles that may have escaped your notice.  No stone was left unturned and no genre or subject has been ignored.  You’ll find literary fiction, thrillers, YA (young adult) literature and graphic novels alongside biographies, historical tomes and books examining business, culture, politics and the economy.

Please stop by to browse or take a look at the display on Pinterest.  You may also want to take a look at our Overdrive downloadable book collection, as some of these books are sure to be found in eBook format to enjoy on your mobile devices.

We’re certain that this display contains something for everyone, but if you don’t find anything intriguing at first glance we encourage you to keep checking back.  We’ll be adding to the display frequently as new acquisitions arrive and currently checked-out books are returned.

Happy New Year and happy reading!
