Better late than never, I guess. This list came out at the beginning of January, but since that comes right at the tail-end of our busiest time of the year in the gift basket business, I forgot about it. Actually, looking back - I have forgotten about it for a few years now. I haven't highlighted the Michigan Notable books since 2011.
The notable books are selected by a committee. Books on the list are either written by a Michigan author and/or are about Michigan and the Great Lakes region.
It's always nice to look at the list and see that I have already read a couple of the books.
