Book Your Stocking with Tom Noyes

Book Your Stocking: December 2

All December, readers of all stripes will share their reading wish-lists and/or give-lists. Note on book links: all titles will be linked to their publishers, or if this isn't an option, to IndieBound so that you can support local bookstores. If you are rural and without bookstores, share this post with your librarian or library's Facebook page.

Please welcome today's reader, Tom Noyes.


In fiction, I'd give Melissa Fraterrigo’s Glory Days (University of Nebraska Press) and in poetry, Cameron Barnett’s The Drowning Boy’s Guide to Water (Autumn House).
