What we are reading … Staff Picks

 

Libby  – I have started reading Charles Martin, Wrapped in Rain.  It is good so far, and just finished Elizabeth Berg’s What We Take, and it was very good. An easy read for a gloomy afternoon!

Melinda – I decided to go back and read some authors I really like but hadn’t read much of lately.  First I read a few Danielle Steel books, the latest being The Award, which was really good. Now I am reading some older Nora Roberts,  picking up on the origins of Luke and Roxanne, from Honest Illusions..

Kevin –  Reading Angels Among Us by Ellen Harris about the spirit of Christmas and how a stranger can have a positive impact. I also recently started reading Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. This book is a historical fiction account of the Battle of Thermopylae.

Joann – I try to read from every genre in the library, and this week I am reading Golden Sower book selections.  My area is for primary grades, so I am reading picture books, and chapter books.

Lynne – I just finished Tiffany Girl.  It’s set in 1893 Chicago, scene of the World’s Fair.  Louis Tiffany was preparing his stained glass Chapel for the World’s Fair when the glassworkers went on strike!  Female art students become Tiffany Girls to help him.

Kathy – I’ve been reading the Culper Ring Trilogy by Brad Meltzer.  I have finished The Inner Circle and The Fifth Assassin and still have a little more reading to go before I finish The  President’s Shadow.  Definite thrillers with lots of historical and political intrigue.

Brenda – I am on the selection committee for the Golden Sower Book Nominees. I am currently reading off of a list of books that are being considered for nomination. Some of the books I have read and enjoyed are: The Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, The Sky at Our Feet by Nadia Hashimi, the Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris and Amina’s Voice by Hena Khan. For the Young reader we have a selection of books that will engage and entertain all ages.

Lois – The Broken Eye, by Brent Weeks.

Karen – Glamorous Illusions, by Lisa T. Bergen. You will be sitting on the edge of your chair, waiting to turn the next page!
