Winter Book Buzz
USA Today highlights some of the books expected to heat up the bestseller lists this winter. Cold winter weather and crackling fires rival sizzling beaches for the best reading spots. I just received an ARC of one of the books included on USA Today's list, One Amazing Thing which I plan to sink my teeth into and then review. What's on your nightstand?
