Leisure reading, and suggestions?

Did you know there's an online form you can fill out to suggest books and media for the library's collection? Here's the link. You can also post a comment to this blog to let us know what you'd like to see.

We recently got a new shipment of books from McNaughton. Basically, these are books that our library rents for the collection, usually best-sellers and popular fiction and nonfiction titles. You can find these books near the front double doors on the second floor, and they have green labels on their spines. You can find good reads here, and they're only available for a limited time, so take advantage of them!

For me, it's just like Christmas when the McNaughton books come in! I just finished Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani, the author of Big Stone Gap, and it was great! Next, I'm going to read the latest Dresden Files novel by Jim Butcher (I love this series about an urban wizard. Entertainment Weekly describes it as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe.)" We also have the latest from Maeve Binchy (excellent), J.D. Robb, Alexander McCall Smith and many others. We have nonfiction books too, such as Joe Torre's account of his time with the Yankees and What Would Google Do? by Jeff Jarvis. We also have audiobooks for your road trips this summer.

Enjoy the chance to read some good books during summer break. Just try not to get too much sand in them if you take them to the beach!
