If you are looking to expand your library, or just a book to read while lounging on one of Cape Cods beautiful beaches, plan a visit to I Cannot Live Without Books located less than one mile from West Dennis Beach.
Can you recommend any other books to our website?
The hottest sellers at I Cannot Live Without Books are Ransom Riggs Miss Peregrine series, and pretty much anything about the American Civil War and American history. Lew (the owner) has been working hard to expand different genres and because of that the poetry section is getting a lot of attention.
Who is your all time favourite author?
My favorite author, hands down, is Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway is arguably the most well-known writer of the twentieth century and because of this has had a powerful influence on literature. Hemingway was an influential writer whose are earned him the respect of the Nobel committee.
What is the last book you read? And whats is about?
I just finished reading Margaret MacMillans The War that Ended Peace: The Road to 1914. This book covers Europe from 1900 until the beginning of World War I. Not only is it a study of Europe during this period, but also of the major (and minor) players that were not able to stop the outbreak of World War I.
Can you tell us about your favourite best selling books?
The best selling fiction books in the store right now (summer of 2016) are the Ransom Riggs Miss Peregrine books. The best selling non-fiction books are those dealing with American history, especially the American Civil War. Presidential biographies are always good sellers.
Describe your books goal?
While it is impossible to have every book that everyone wants, my goal is to have the best selection of new and "gently read" books that I can possibly put together. What I try to do is stay within my "comfort zone" as much as possible so that I can help people select good reads.
