We here at The Offending Adam
consider ourselves so lucky both to be a part of the literary community in our various ways, as well as to have so many loyal readers come here to make this journal a vibrant space for literature. We now invite you to browse nine books that have impressed or excited us, in the hopes that some of them might find a home either with your friends and loved ones or, also, on your own book shelf.
The Offending Adam
As winter and holiday season approach, many journals and magazines and newspapers come out with various “best of” lists. We find these a little silly, not because they aren’t fun to peruse, but because of the presumptuous idea that one can, in such a short time span, create some sort of hierarchy. However, the one thing these lists do accomplish that we approve of is helping guide readers to new books, to exciting books, to books that deserve readers. We already, every month, select two books to highlight in our store
. For the holiday season, we are expanding our suggestions in two ways: we are listing nine books and we are listing books outside of the realm of poetry, including prose and fiction selections as well.
We hope that you are also excited by some of these books and choose to read them. For those of you who have enjoyed the content that this journal has provided over the course of the year, we encourage you to purchase the below books and all of your holiday shopping by beginning through our own links to Amazon. We receive a small percentage of each sale, which funds the journal and allows us to continue to bring you vibrant literary offerings each week. Any item, be it book, DVD, or silver plated serving dish, that you purchase after clicking on one of our links passes that small percentage on to us. Without further delay, we present a suggested holiday reading list:
