Each month, the Indie Next List Notables flier offers a great selection of titles from indie booksellers nationwide that complement the month's Indie Next List selections in both window and in-store displays. The flier is available at BookWeb.org in PDF format and features jacket images, bibliographic information, and bookseller quotes. Bookseller quotes are also currently available in an electronic file of Notables shelf-talkers, which simply need to be printed and cut, to draw attention to face-outs.
The November Indie Notables list features an intriguing range of fiction, nonfiction, and mystery titles. Fiction titles include the latest from indie favorite Kate Atkinson, When Will There Be Good News? (Little, Brown), and a broad selection of nonfiction -- from great science writing (Descartes' Bones: A Skeletal History of the Conflict Between Faith and Reason [Doubleday] and The Unfinished Game: Pascal, Fermat, and the Seventeenth-Century Letter That Made the World Modern [Basic]) to stirring memoir (Holy Roller: Growing Up in the Church of Knock Down, Drag Out; Or, How I Quit Loving a Blue-Eyed Jesus [Chelsea Green] and Something for the Pain: One Doctor's Account of Life and Death in the ER [Norton]). The list's mystery/suspense titles include the latest in the C.J. Floyd series, Blackbird Farewell (Frog Books), and The Draining Lake, featuring Inspector Eriendur Sveinsson (St. Martin's Minotaur).
