Busy rainy October day

We are having an exciting day at the Library today! This morning we were thrilled to have a visit from the Jackson Grammar School. They checked out lots of our new books and made some fantastic bookmarks.

And I just now accepted delivery of a brand new book cart! This baby will let us move books around as quickly as possible.

Speaking of new books, have you checked out what we have gotten in this month? Some great new stuff in there. New books include Blood of Olympus, the latest in Rick Riordan‘s Heros of Olympus series.

We also loaned the new John Grisham, Gray Mountain, on the very day it was released to the public. Always satisfying to have your novels in a row, so to speak.

The mysterious benefactor who keeps us supplied with award winners just dropped off the 2014 Booker-Man winner, The Narrow Road to the Deep North. Jodi Picoult almost never disappoints and there’s not even a waiting list for Leaving Time.

Those of us who have spent two chilly winter nights riveted to Ken Follett‘s Century Trilogy can now tuck into the latest installment. Edge of Eternity (After the first, Fall of Giants in 2010, and the second, Winter of the World in 2012.)

The tomes are too heavy for me to read, I listen to them on downloadable audio while I’m doing dishes or driving and, gosh, my house has never been so clean! They each follow a generation of several families through WWI, WWII, and the 1960s. My favorite in Book Three is George Jakes who is the illegitimate grandson of Lev Peshkov who came to the US from the USSR in the first book. I love how the families intertwine and the main characters’ grandparents are the ones the reader knows well from the other books.

Readingly, Lichen
