It's hard to believe that we are already halfway through the year! I've mentioned before about how much I enjoy end-of-the-year lists, but it seems that mid-year lists are just as popular as well now. Below are links to a few lists for your perusal in case you're looking for some more summer reading suggestions:amazon.comBookPage
This week's book review is courtesy of SueCat from the St. George Library.
Right off the bat, this book is the kind worth reading. Written by Peter Swanson, The Kind Worth Killing has all the “pieces parts” to be a movie, and as I raced through the ever-twisting plot, it was a movie experience in my head. For a story with only a few major characters, you are on a wicked journey of suspense and surprise.
One of my favorite activities as the calendar year draws to a close is to look at all of the "best of" lists that are generated to see what I might have missed out on reading, watching, or listening to over the past year. Here are just a few of the "best books of 2014" lists for your consideration in case you are looking for any new discoveries or gift ideas during the holiday season.
Come shop, shop, shop for gifts and yourself. The Friends of the St. George Library are having a fall book sale Wednesday and Thursday, November 12th & 13th. Doors to the Event Room will open at 2 pm and close at 7:30 pm both days. Paperbacks are 50 cents each; hardbacks, music CDs, DVDs and audio books are $1.00. Or you can stuff a bag for $5. Don't miss this bargain hunter's dream.
Special events have been a part of library programming since I can remember. At times it's provided by the library. Sometimes it's provided by community groups, organizations or non-profit groups such as Friends of the Library.
