For many years now, one of the most universally beloved things about Harvard Book Store has been our staff's hand-picked book recommendations. These personal, eloquent blurbs have always been available to read throughout the store and on harvard.com, but in 2013, for the first time, we compiled all the year's recommendations into a little volume and printed it on our book-making robot, “Paige.”
It’s becoming an annual tradition! Here you have the 2014 edition of Recommended by Harvard Book Store. Inside, you’ll find recommendations for novels and memoirs, for art and history and science, for comics, picture books, and poetry. You’ll read about Unseen Academicals, and Men Explain Things to Me, and The Days of Abandonment, everything from ballet to crocodiles to Shakespeare. We at Harvard Book Store have eclectic taste, so whoever you are, whatever you love to read, there’s something here for you.
