ShoppersGiving books for the holidays? As we already knew, the folks in Baristaville have a well-honed sense of humor. At both of Montclair’s book emporiums, watchung booksellers and Montclair Book Center, the runaway must-have book gift has been America by John Stewart. Running a close second is the season’s other humor tome, When Will Jesus Bring the Porkchops by George Carlin. Among the crossover faves, Amazon buyers in Glen Ridge and Bloomfield have two books in common: Lies and The Lying Liars who Tell Them by Al Franken and John Grisham’s The Last Juror. In Montclair, Gender on Trial by Holly English and Strapless by Deborah Davis claim Amazon’s top two spots this week. At watchung booksellers, people are also clamoring for The New York Times Guide to Essential Knowledge; Montclair Book Center is selling stacks of Philip Roth’s Plot Against America. We invite you to read into this as you see fit…
