Spring Titles from Book Culture Selects

Greetings fellow bookworms,

Spring is a busy time for us here at Book Culture Selects-- what with lucky new subscribers from our Independent Bookstore Day raffles and a wonderful influx of moms post-Mother's Day! If you're looking for something new to read, look no further. You can find the full list of books we handpicked to send to our subscribers in April and May below! Surely one will catch your eye. They certainly caught ours.

There is one book that will not be included on this list: in April, I sent a picture book whose author has since been accused of sexual misconduct. In light of this, I issued an apology to the families who received that title, and will not be promoting it moving forward. If you have questions or concerns about this, please feel free to email me at subscription@bookculture.com and I would be happy to discuss it with you.
