Our Favorite Books of the Year

2021 FAVORITES

Every year we ask our booksellers to do the impossible and pick the book that was their favorite read of the year in each of three categories: fiction, nonfiction, and kids books. Not necessarily their favorite new book—just the one book they picked up and read and loved.

Here are our picks for 2021...
