Hit Me With The Det’s

They say “the devil is in the details,” but all I’m seeing in the details of Underground Books is more literary goodness through which to rummage! Now that you’ve seen the genres available in the shelves, let’s break it down further, and I will list out some of the authors and titles present to give you an idea of the variety present. On their website, there is an intensive list of the categories they offer, but I have chosen a few sections that I documented when they caught my eye that are listed below:
