A lot of people don’t realize this series began all the way back in the ’90s, but the significance of Netflix on books being resurrected continues with this series. I have to admit my coworkers were the reason I picked this up to read before I watch the show (I’m one of those people!)

The Witcher, Geralt de Rivia, is a man who destroys monsters that plague the lands in which he dwells. Those who want to sink their teeth into a good fantasy series should start here—this is a collection of stories about Geralt; an introduction to the character before he begins his journey in the saga.

Georgette Coan is the manager of Barbara's Bookstore at Woodfield Mall in Schaumberg, IL. She began working for Barbara's in 2010 and was the manager at Barbara's in Burr Ridge, IL. Georgette believes that people still buy paper books because they long for the feel of a physical volume in their hands, actual books on their bookshelves at home, a way to have an actual library (you can't wrap an E-reader!) to pass onto their families. "Books harken back to a more nostalgic era. This new technology isn't for everyone; physical copies of books still offer another choice to those who don't care for the newfangled technology known as E-books and E-readers."
