Ah, spring! The time when a TNR reader's thoughts turn to romance--or, failing that, to amassing excellent books.

For those drawing up a reading list, or just interested in browsing, I urge you to check out the TNR Bookshelf--an evolving online list of books by TNR-affiliated authors that mirrors an actual physical bookshelf in The New Republic's Washington, D.C. offices.
