Are you searching for the NEXT best book? Are you willing to kiss all your spare cash goodbye? Are you easily distracted by independent bookshops, bigAre you searching for the NEXT best book?
Are you willing to kiss all your spare cash goodbye? Are you easily distracted by independent bookshops, big name book stores, and library or used book sales? Are your bookshelves currently a little tight of space?
Joining this group is highly addictive. In a matter of weeks, your TBR list will be longer than you are tall, you will be wondering how the heck you walked into a bookstore for one little book, and walked out with two bags crammed full of new novels you never knew you wanted. Your bookshelves will be bursting at the seams and you wont remember what color the rug was as it will be buried under all the new purchases you have made!
We are not here to hold you back, or pat your hand as you try to be strong and cut back on your purchases. We will be rallying behind you, chanting your name as you enter the bookstore, and we will throw a book-party in your honor when you come back and share all the wonderful new books youve adopted with us!
I would love for you to follow TNBBC on Facebook and Twitter!!! And be sure to check out book reviews and special indie series and spotlights on TheNextBestBookBlog.blogspot.com.

In the years from 1900 to 1945 the world of literature went through a seismic shift. The idealism of the Belle Époque gave way to Dada, surrealism and many a movement that came to embody the modernist era.
Turbulent political times and a series of catastrophic world events gave rise to a generation of novelists and poets striving to make sense out of a changed world order, who combined to produce some of the finest works of fiction ever put to paper.
If you love Evelyn Waugh, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, W. Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad, Katherine Mansfield, D.H. Lawrence, Marcel Proust, W.H. Auden, Ernest Hemingway, Aldous Huxley, F. Scott Fitzgerald...and the many other exciting authors of that time you'll love this group.
