If you’re traveling this holiday season—or just enjoying some end-of-year downtime—you might be in need of some good book recommendations. With that in mind, in this episode of the Modern Law Library, the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles brings you a glimpse at what we’ve been reading around the ABA offices. Staff recommendations run the gamut from romance to horror to self-help to historical fiction.

ABA Journal Senior Designer Sara Wadford will take you behind the scenes of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction’s selection process, and the middle-grade book that captured the nominating committee’s attention. ABA Publishing’s Ashley Alfirevic shares her favorite titles for career advancement and pleasure reading. ABA Journal Assistant Copy Editor Shirley Henderson favors books that will make you shiver from fright as well as cold, and ABA Journal Design Director Brenan Sharp gives a shout-out to a book about the history of American music.

Make 2020 the year you make time to curl up with a good book, and tell us about your favorite read of 2019 on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.
