Our Winter Reading Club has gotten off to a great start with participants reading so many books! If you have not joined the Winter Reading Club, it is not too late. Stop by the Reader Services Desk and pick up a reading log. For every 5 books read, you will receive coupons for free DVD and book rentals. Our theme is “Reader Favorites” which are suggestions from past participants in the Winter and Summer Reading Clubs.
One of the best things about the program is reading and sharing the reviews of the books our participants have enjoyed. Patron Gerald N. is one a few readers who recommend Foster by Claire Keegan. Mr. N. compares story to those of Willa Cather, though Foster is set in Ireland. Sue B. comments that When We Danced on Water, by Evan Fallenberg, is “a deeply moving tale about love and creativity.” For fans of the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre, Sharon G. recommends Beauty and The Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey which Sharon describes as an “interesting twist on some standard tales.” Our very own NPL staff member Vicki O. has just read Sleepwalker, a new action-packed thriller by Karen Robards. The story takes place in Detroit, mostly during New Year’s Day, and is filled with chases and excitement.
What are you reading? The Winter Reading Club ends February 29 with a grand prize drawing.
