Oh No! I Haven’t Bought Presents Yet!

In unrelated news, apparently everyone loves Nextbook Press

Print Email

Apparently some people give gifts on December 25th. We wouldn’t dare suggest that Nextbook Press books would make an excellent stocking stuffer. Yet it would be negligent for us not to point out that all three Nextbook Press titles released in 2010 were named to “best of 2010″ lists!

Yehuda Halevi by Hillel Halkin was named one of the best non-fiction books of the year by Jewish Ideas Daily.

Burnt Books by Rodger Kamenetz was one of the year’s (we think century, but whatever) best religion books says the Huffington Post.

Hillel: If Not Now, When? by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin got the gracious nod from Publishers Weekly.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
