This week I came across a number of interesting books on the new book shelf to add to my TBR list. I almost never read nonfiction, but these titles looked so intriguing.
There are a number of thrillers coming out this spring and summer for all us Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train fans. One that has a lot of buzz is B.A. Paris’ Breakdown, releasing in July 2017. Cass doesn’t bother to stop at a broken down car on a rainy night only to find out later the driver has been murdered. A shocking conclusion is promised!
I was sick recently and off work for a few days. I read several books during this time, and my cat, Ginger, kept me company. She’s the best cat ever.
I can’t remember a previous year where so many Oscar nominees are adaptations of books.
It occurred to me that I keep blogging about what I am reading, while the titles a person wants to read are just as interesting. So, what’s on my bedside table (figuratively speaking)? As you may have realized by now, I like quirky books.
The American Library Association announced on Sunday their chosen award winners for 2017.
I had a very merry Christmas. I hope yours was too. In this last week of 2016, I’ve been reflecting on the past year. With the contentious election, it’s been a tumultuous year. But, throughout, I’ve kept reading and listening as I am sure you have. In my life, books are a comfort, a friend, a teacher, and a motivator.
I opened my email this morning, to read a gratifying piece of news. The Maine State Library just recently did a survey regarding trust in professionals and found that librarians rank near the top of the list. Of all respondents, 78% ranked librarians as high/very high in trustworthiness. Only nurses ranked higher. For more information, access the study here.
