9 Books We Want to Read in March

We love helping readers find the best books each week in our e-newsletter, via our quarterly reading guides, and through our many book lists.  Despite all our best intentions, we can’t read all the books – even though we wish we could!  Plus, sometimes we miss out on early copies, and we have to wait until books are available in bookstores.  So this book list is filled with those books we can’t wait to get our hands on this month. March is planning to round out the first quarter of 2021 with some excellent books.  So check out this list of new books that we can’t wait to read this month!
