Of course, if you’re looking for something to read, whether fiction or nonfiction, brand-new or classic, we can help! We’ve got lots of books for readers of all ages, and e-books and audiobooks, too. Just browse through this blog for some suggestions. Try the tag “reading”, and you’ll find lots of books my colleagues and I enjoyed. I’m going to list just a couple of new ones here, too (you can find this first one in the system, and don’t forget all our wonderful e-book databases!)

every morning

By the author of the bestselling “A Man Called Ove”, this is the story of a grandfather, a son, a grandson, and a family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s. Touching and beautifully written. 

Medicus

As the starred review in “Booklist” says, “Fans of Alexander McCall Smith will delight in this series debut set in Roman-occupied Britain and featuring wry army doctor Gaius Petreius Ruso.” The first in a series. The settings and characters are intriguing, the humor, unlike the British weather, very dry; and the villainy is grim.  Terrific for both cozy and historical mystery fans.

Agnes Grey

And finally, a real classic. Often overshadowed by her brilliant sisters, Anne Bronte was also a gifted writer. In this autobiographical novel, young Agnes Grey works as a governess in several wealthy households. She must struggle to maintain her integrity and to find love.
