Welcome Back!

Where did the summer go? 

Welcome back  everyone!  Now’s the time to come in and check out a new read.  The selection is at its best and there are new titles to choose from.  Have a look at our displays.

What did you read over the summer?

I got lost in “Sweden” with writer Henning Mankell and his Kurt Wallander thrillers.  Thanks to Mr. Royer for sharing these books with me.  Whenever it got too hot outside I could disappear into one of the dark, brooding novels.  There’s nothing like a good mystery to get you thinking.  I can’t believe I’m actually reading my 9th title!

Looking for something in particular?

Don’t forget you can request titles and I’ll do my best to get them for you.  I like to keep up with all the exciting new authors and books. Please let me know what you’d like to see in the collection.
