What we’re reading.

I’ve got less books than usual this week because so many people have been busy with other things lately!

I’m extremely jealous of the speedy co-worker who snagged Jason Offutt’s What Lurks Beyond: The Paranormal in Your Backyard:

Ghosts, aliens, a time traveler, and a mind-reading dog could be fiction, but Jason Offutt investigates true tales of these and other paranormal events that happened within 100 miles of his home. Offutt introduces ordinary folks who have encountered unexplained phenomena in everyday places and presents engaging accounts of their experiences. Getting a glimpse of this hidden world around us may prompt us to look–really look–in our own backyard.

I’m still working on my Cybils reading, so it’s been all SF and fantasy for me lately! Most recently was David Macinnis Gill’s Black Hole Sun:

Durango is playing the cards he was dealt. And it’s not a good hand.

He’s lost his family.

He’s lost his crew.

And he’s got the scars to prove it.

You don’t want to mess with Durango.

And lastly, another co-worker is very excited about Eric Cantor’s Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders:

Make no mistake: Congressmen Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy are proud Republicans. But they believe the party had lost sight of the ideals it believes in, like economic freedom, limited government, the sanctity of life, and putting families first. This isn’t your grandfather’s Republican party. These Young Guns of the House GOP—Cantor (the leader), Ryan (the thinker), and McCarthy (the strategist)—are ready to take their belief in the principles that have made America great and translate it into solutions that will make the future even better, solutions that will create private sector jobs, maximize individual freedom, and establish a better world for our children. This groundbreaking book is a call to action that sets forth a plan for growth, opportunity, and commitment that will propel this country to prosperity once again. Together, the Young Guns are changing the face of the Republican party and giving us a new road map back to the American dream.

As always, if you would like to place a hold, please call the library at 985-2173 or visit our website.
