What a surprise! We’ve got some more titles to share with y’all this week. It seems the library people really like books. But reading isn’t all we do… Sometimes we watch TV. Then again, we do have a few staff members who have been known to read a book while watching TV.

We’d like to know what y’all are reading too! So, please feel free to let us know in the comments.

 

P.S. Be Eleven by Rita Williams-Garcia

This is the second part of the One Crazy Summer trilogy. Delphine, Vonetta and Fern are back home in Brooklyn, still excited from their summer spent in Oakland, California. When they return, they find that things have changed. It’s a great coming of age story about being young and staying that way. Once again, I definitely recommend to young readers.

My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza

This is a delightful children’s book about a little pig out witting a hungry fox. It is a story your kid will want to hear again and again.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Loved it! I hadn’t read a play since I had to read Shakespeare in high school, but despite the format of the book it was a delightful read. I enjoyed my time back in Harry Potter’s world and so will anyone who is a fan of the Harry Potter books.

Aftershock by Chuck Scarborough

A major earthquake hits New York City!

This title appeared on a “weeding” list and I love disaster stories so I had to check it out. Plus, it sounds just like a TV movie I watched once and I wanted to see if this was the basis for that movie.

Talk like TED: the 9 public speaking secrets of the world’s top minds by Carmine Gallo.

This book is helpful for those who are beginning to public speak. Also good for people who already have been doing public speaking. I picked this book up because I was taking a class on public speaking at the time. I needed all the pointers I could get.

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine

I just begged our cataloger to get this book processed for me. It’s book 2 in the Great Library series and I can’t wait to read it!

Safely Home by Randy Alcorn

Synopsis: This very moving and well-written book begins, “Is this the day I die?” Two main characters, one Chinese and one American, whose lives intersect, learn what a difference living for Christ makes in everyday life and what it means to stay true to their faith even in the face of death. This novel describes the persecution Chinese Christian believers face in in China today and is based on a poignant painting by Ron DiCianni of the same title.

“G o o o d evening!”

Currently, I’m bingeing on a wonderful, classic, TV series. It is Alfred Hitchcock’s original Alfred Hitchcock Presents. The library has seasons 1 and 2 (1955-56 and 56-57). Each episode is one half hour long and is totally self-contained so there is no plot carryover from one week to the next. Different actors star each week so there is always a new face and fresh talent. Of course it is in classic black and white. It is mystery not science fiction. No gratuitous violence.
