Reviewing this year's best readsPlay
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and for some of us, it ushers in a period of time away from work.
Couple that with omicron forcing many of us inside and away from our plans this year, and you may be looking at more free time than you expected as 2021 wraps.
That leaves us asking: why not fill that time with some reading?
Maybe you have that book you've started and put down throughout the year — or are looking for something new and different to pick up. Either way, we want to hear from you.
We take your calls on your favorite reads with Jennifer De Leon, author, and editor of Wise Latinas and Katherine Nazzarro, bookseller and manager at Porter Square Books in Cambridge.
