regular features

On the main home page you'll find a bookbuffet features section with the latest book news as well as feature articles. Our regular features include:


Monthly Author Spotlight: We interview or review a particular author a month.  Read the interview transcript (MP3 capability coming soon) and buy the book, or bone up on the featured author with our extensive review of their works and contributions to literature.  Discover a whole new body of work.

Books to Film: Monthly feature highlighting upcoming films adapted from books. Release dates are noted so you have time to purchase and read the book, then go and see the film. Comparing the film to the book is an excellent starting point for discussion.  Its also a fun field trip for your group—see the film or rent the video.


Bookshop Browsing Around the Globe: Catch what the locals are reading and discover emerging authors and classic reads from around the world. London, Berlin, Paris, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Guadalajara, Buenos Aires, Shanghai, Sydney . . . No need for a passport, just grab your reading glasses!


Book Groups with a Twist: Yes, YOU become our focus in this monthly feature on groups with that different edge, that fresh approach, unique concept or idea.  Drop us a line at about your group. Include a digital photo, too!


Classics Corner: This extensive category deserves special attention.  A different era/author/genre is featured each month with authoritative links and resources to stimulate and broaden your reading.


Your Favorite Independent Book Store: The place where you can discover hidden treasures, such as a great, obscure author from a small press . . . where the most amazing store owner or assistant can recommend diverse titles . . . where you can sit back and feel at home . . . Each month we celebrate the independent spirit of local book stores.


Also on the home page, a Literary Calendar:
