Staff Picks at Fabled

Maybe it’s dramatic, but I’ve started to think of the handwritten Staff Picks at Fabled as flags of defiance in our algorithmically programmed world. It’s going to take drama and flag-waving and supporting things like handwritten Staff Picks to stand up to the beast. Because while there is a certain comfort in settling into socks that Amazon guessed I would like based on previous purchases, there are better things in the world than comfort. Surprise. Discovery. Growth. All of which happen when I peruse the Staff Picks only to find a title I might never have chosen otherwise, but then love and thrive with and read under the covers until the sun comes up. No algorithm is ever going to love you so good, and that’s not drama, it’s fact. — Anna Mitchael
