Trying something new
Cover Art Now that the holidays are coming to a close, life is becoming less hectic and possibly more open for leisure activities like reading. As you ponder the myriad possibilities, consider escaping into new worlds through a different genre: graphic novels. There's manga and action heroes, but there are also complex, thought-provoking stories about any number of ordinary topics that come to life through art. It's a unique way to experience a gripping story.

If you're looking for a good place to start, look no further than Bookspace. Our librarians have put together lists of a range of highly-regarded graphic novels. Don't discount this special genre as you think about your next read. Your new favorite book might be shelved where you least expected it.
