30 Picks List

Celebrating 30 years of books, reading, and community in Falmouth!


We nominated, voted, deliberated, and voted again. The criteria were pretty loose. It's not a "best of" list. It's a list of books we love. Our collective favorites.


In our election, staff members were allowed to stuff the ballot box. Everyone had 30 votes to distribute among the long list of books. If you wanted, you could vote for one book 30 times. Ultimately we created these two lists of 30 favorites, listed below in alphabetical order. Enjoy!


If you want to send us your list of 30 favorites, we'd love to see it! Email titles to books@eightcousins.com. Remember lists of 30 books only! It might be harder than you think.
