Maybe it’s just that back to school feeling, but there’s nothing better than cracking open a new book – except having a new pair of readers to read with!

Let’s start with the readers, because you won’t be able to see the words if you don’t have a pair!
Equal parts trendy and vintage, the Venus frames might just be my favorite new release this fall. The round lenses come in silver or gold, and are a perfectly funky way to express personal style. If you like the round shape but Venus feels a little too steampunk for you, the Wynton frames will probably be more your style. The tortoiseshell acetate has a book-ish, Jazz age flair we love.
Looking for something more classic? You can’t get more classic than gold-rimmed aviators. The Mabuhay frames are one of their coolest, and I love this version with the clear lenses. But! They also come in a rose-gold with pink lenses, and blue lenses if you’re looking for more color.
Did You Hear About Kitty Karr? Is a page-turning quick read that unfolds like a mystery. A story about celebrities and fame, it tackles the myth making of celebrities with insight. When white film star Kitty Kerr leaver her fortune to the three Black, wealthy St.John sisters – even they don’t know why.
When Oprah picks a book for her book club, you know it’s going to be good. The Covenant of Water lives up to the hype. This multi-generational epic set in India over a hundred-ish years from bestseller Abraham Verghese is surprising, emotional, and thoroughly modern.
