Library Talk – April 5, 2018


Library Talk April 5, 2018

            Already into the second quarter of the year—amazing.  Still waiting for the true spring feeling, but I have noticed that besides the dandelions and the violets in the library lawn, our lilacs, dogwood and redbud are not too terribly far behind. I guess with the colder nights, it is a good thing they didn’t bloom early. Still time to think about gardens, both floral and vegetable, and we have lots of books and even documentary DVDs to help your planning for a productive 2018.

            New books out this week include: Charles Frazier’s Varina (Frazier wrote the best-selling novel Cold Mountain and this book returns to the same time period, 1865), Beverly Lewis’ latest Amish novel The Road Home, Nancy Thayer starts the season of ‘beach reading’ with A Nantucket Wedding, Ann Ross continues with her Miss Julia series in Miss Julia Raises the Roof,Mary Higgins Clark returns with a fast read titled I’ve Got My Eyes on You, Anne Hillerman (daughter of the late Tony Hillerman) returns with Jim Chee, Joe Leaphorn and others in Cave of Bones and for a twisty suspense novel, Jeffery Deaver offers Cutting Edge, with Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs as the main investigators.

            Non-fiction seemed a little slim in the latest book box, but Joyce Meyer’s newest self-help book Living a Life You Love and Robert Kurson’s Rocket Men: The Daring Odyssey of Apollo 8 and the Astronauts Who Made Man’s First Journey to the Moon have been added to our collection.

 We are always adding paperbacks to our collection, with contemporary and historical romances, mysteries, westerns, suspense, science fiction and fantasy. If there is an author or a genre you think we should consider, please let us know, we value your input.
