|Duck at the door |
by Urbanovic, Jackie.
I like to have at least one Easy Picture Book on my reading list, especially when it's clever and brings a smile to both young and old. This is my current favorite. posted Feb 25, 2014 at 5:25PM
|The wisdom of Wooden : my century on and off the court |
by Wooden, John, 1910-2010
To lead a better life, you can't do much better than to follow Wooden's famous Pyramid For Success, just one of the many jewels in the last book written by the legendary UCLA baskeball coach. posted Feb 15, 2014 at 11:25AM
|Ick! Yuck! Eew! : our gross American history |
by Huey, Lois Miner
This book will make you "grossly" thankful you didn't live in America in 1770, when lice were in your hair (and wig)and barbers pulled your rotten teeth without painkillers (except for a shot of whiskey). Children's books like this one are often an interesting read for adults, too. posted Feb 15, 2014 at 11:00AM
|Brewster : a novel |
by Slouka, Mark.
Recommended by a library patron. A coming-of-age story and a story of domestic abuse that is beautifully written. Great characters. A favorite in 2013. posted Jan 3, 2014 at 2:22PM
|The unwinding : an inner history of the new America |
by Packer, George, 1960-
A look at America in the new millennium through the eyes of some ordinary folks interspersed with chapters about well-known people. The emphasis is on the aftermath of the financial crisis and the Great Recession. A great book. Very readable. Winner of the National Book Award. posted Oct 19, 2013 at 7:15AM
