Staff Picks of the Decade

It all comes back to books. Every month for the last ten years, the booksellers at Porter Square Books have made staff picks. We’ve picked brand new books by debut authors, masterpieces by established literary stars, unjustly forgotten books from the past, quirky books, classics to revisit, beach reads, dense tomes, and everything in between, under the sun, and over the moon. And out of all the hundreds of picks we’ve made over the years, and the thousands of other good books we’ve read in that time, the booksellers of Porter Square Books have each chosen their Pick of the Decade. For some, the pick was obvious and for others it was about the most difficult decision you can ask a reader to make.

Over the course of September, leading up to our anniversary celebration on September 28th (where you’ll hear about these picks again, in the context of a raffle prize!), we will be sharing Picks of the Decade on Twitter and Facebook. You can keep track of all the shared Picks here. So much goes into keeping a bookstore open and thriving and with all the daily challenges and little triumphs, it can be easy to lose perspective. But it all comes back to books, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our ten-year anniversary than doing what we most love to do: introducing readers to great books.
