Ten Of My Favorite Books To Read Right Now

The books on this list are some of my all-time favorites. I promise that these are all amazing. I have heard that people are having a difficult time concentrating on reading right now. I get that. Still, maybe you just need the right books. And here are some of the greats and most of these are in paperback.

Beach Music

I read BEACH MUSIC for the first time in June of 1995 just after it was published. That’s exactly 25 years ago. Wow. I reread it about ten years ago while we were traveling through Italy. It is the Best book I’ve ever read.

Cutting For Stone

Cutting For Stone

Abraham Verghese’s CUTTING FOR STONE is another of the greats. Amazing writing with unforgettable characters that are still living in my mind.

The Invisible Bridge

Invisible Bridge

Julie Orringer’s THE INVISIBLE BRIDGE is the best WWII novel ever. Period.

Amanda Coplin

The Orchardist


THE ORCHARDIST by Amanda Coplin is pure genius. It’s so unique and so unputdownable. Just read it.




I fell in love with PACHINKO because the writing and story reminded me of THE GOOD EARTH by Pearl S. Buck. You will too.

Kristin Hannah

The Great Alone



THE GREAT ALONE is one of those novels that holds you captive. Amazing story in Alaska.

Kristin Harmel

When We Meet Again


WHEN WE MEET AGAIN is set mostly in Florida after WWII and holds little known information. Harmel is an Orlando author who we just love at Copperfish Books.

Chanel Cleeton

Next Year In Havana

You will fall in love with NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA and the lovely cover. Based on the author’s grandmother’s escape from Cuba. Wonderful.

Summer of 69





SUMMER OF 69 is now available in a paperback version making it just right for now. Let’s bring back that fateful summer that most of us remember well.

A Good Neighborhood

Last and brand spanking new comes A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD. It’s wonderful. Can you tell I loved it? It’s a slip of a book but pulls a powerful punch.

All these books are available at Copperfish Books. Nine are available in trade paperback. We have many used copies.  Our store is still open with reduced hours. You can call and reserve your book or have it sent directly to  your house.

Punta Gorda

Copperfish Books

This is a great time to pick up that perfect book that you’ve been meaning to read. And the books on this page are sure to please.

As always, I wish you all a great book. Be safe my reading friends. Be safe.
