Library Notes for September 28, 2011

September

Ripe fruit, old footballs,

Drying grass,

New books and blackboards

Chalk in class by John Updike.

I don’t think they have blackboards or chalk anymore, but I do know about New Books! All the “Pam’s Picks” are block busters so it will be a readers choice, except for a very special over size-book with many many colorful pictures. Life Magazine presents “Diana at 50.” You will enjoy looking at it.

New Fiction: “Betrayal of Trust” by J. A. Jance, this is a J.P. Beaumont mystery. Seattle Investigator Beaumont uncovers a dark, deadly conspiracy that reaches deep into state government.

“Merciless” by Diana Palmer, this is the story of a love found by accident. FBI Agent Blackhawk comes to depend on his assistant Joceline more and more. When she comes to his aid he soon learns he can’t live without her.

“Cold Vengeance” by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child, the story of a bonding trip for Pendergast and his brother-in-law turns violent and the Agent is left mortally wounded. Will he survive and finish his quest for more information about the death of his wife Helen? This is a must read for those of us who can’t get enough of Agent Pendergast!

“New York to Dallas” by J.D. Robb, this is an In Death novel with Eve Dallas. If you are not familiar with this series it’s quite fascinating. Eve is a woman detective with the NYPD. Her new case will take her back to the city that gave her the Dallas name. The In Death series is a little bit on the futuristic side.

“White Shotgun” by April Smith, an FBI Special Agent Ana Grey novel. Even on leave from the FBI, Ana can’t stay out of trouble. The Bureau contacts her for a special undercover assignment, to investigate a half-sister she did not know she had.

“First Dance” by Richard Wheeler, this is a Barnaby Skye western. Miles City, Montana 1885. Barnaby’s son Dirk has just married Therese. Dirk’s position as a civilian translator for the U.S. Army threatens to shatter their union.

New Christian Fiction: “The Mercy” by Beverly Lewis, this is the final book in the Rose trilogy. It continues the story of the Amish in Pennsylvania Dutch Country.  

New Non-fiction: “Living Beyond Your Feelings” by Joyce Meyer, this is about controlling emotions so they don’t control you.

Just one last book, an oldie but a goodie that we did not have, “The Frontier Stories” by Louis L’Amour. Nobody does Westerns like Louis!

New Audio Books on CDs: “Fallen” by Karin Slaughter, and “The Fifth Witness” by Michael Connelly.

New DVDs: “Fair Game” and “Dora the Explorer: City of Lost Toys.”
