Books Courtesy of Reader's Digest Magazine

I was looking in the latest issue of Reader's Digest Magazine yesterday, and came across their book section. There I found some titles that I thought worthy to put out there to all you bookworms. Here they are:

Life is a Gift:The Zen of Bennett by Tony Bennett
(HarperCollins, $28.99)
The singer offers life lessons and delightful anecdotes from an extraordinary career.
Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman
(Crown, $26)
After losing her husband in her 40s, Aikman couldn't find what she needed in a traditional support group. So she created her own circle of young widows who relied on friendship, practical help, and laughter to help themselves heal.
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
(Knopf, $25.95)
This keenly anticipated debut novel is both a single family's drama and an account of the Great Migration of African Americans out of the rural South. Mathis's novel begins in 1925 and moves through the 1980s, relating the titular Hattie's story through her children.
Kind of Kin by Rilla Askew
(Ecco, $25.99)
Set in small-town Oklahoma, Askew's novel centers on a community dealing with harsh new immigration laws and ethical dilemmas.
Gun Machine by Warren Ellis
(Little, Brown, $25.99)
The author has a cult following for graphic novels-now he is gunning to keep you up all night with a creepy serial-killer thriller.
Chanel Bonfire by Wendy Lawless
(Gallery Books, $25)
Lawless's chronicles of life with her charming, wildly unstable mother could be bleak, but the author's wit, resilience, and compassion make her story illuminating and inspiring.
Happy Reading!
