Winners of Southern Living’s award for Best Bookstore in Houston, the purveyors of page-turners at Brazos Bookstore stir mind juices with independently published titles and hosted author appearances. Bibliophiles can curl up with a poignant work of independent nonfiction such as Zeitoun, a tale of a man's vexed struggle to help others during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, scribed by Dave Eggers ($15.95, paperback). Or get in touch with your inner Texan with Henry L. Roubicek's So, What's Your Story? Discovering the Story in You, which details the proper method for detecting any novels that may be lodged in your stomach. Roubicek will make an appearance to discuss his title on Sunday, February 13.
