Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Patrons~

Happy 2019 to all! We are looking forward to the new year and to discovering new books to read.

As 2019 begins, I am waiting as patiently as possible to read the newest Louise Penny book, Kingdom of the Blind. In the meantime, I recently discovered the author Paul Doiron. His books feature the main character, Mike Bowditch, a Maine game warden.

For those of you who enjoy listening to audio books, I recommend The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Fans of Zusak will be excited to know that he has a new book out, Bridge of Clay which I look forward to either reading, or listening to, soon.

I always have a few books on my coffee table just waiting to be cracked open! My favorite reads are mysteries – especially ones from authors C.J. Box, Alan Bradley, Lee Child, Ann Cleeves and Michael Connelley (just to name a few!).

Below is a list of books that I’d like to share with you from the staff and me. We put together a list of some of our favorite titles from 2018.

Next time you visit us in the library, share with us some of your favorite recent reads.

Happy Reading!
