  • "The Third Angel" by Alice Hoffman

    Alice Hoffman has long been one of my favorite authors. But the truth is that I have grown a bit weary of the atmospheric, otherworldy touches that are entangled into every scene in every novel. So I was pleasantly surprised to read this intricately woven story of three women whose lives are connected...

  • The Bus for Us

    "Is this the bus for us, Gus?" That's the question Tess asks on every other page of this book, while they wait to go to school. Big brother Gus answers with varying degrees of patience. Meanwhile more kids keep lining up to ride too, and their wordless activities are worth watching. And...

  • "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan

    This is a fascinating discussion of our relationship to the food we eat. Mr. Pollan first discusses the familiar Industrial Agricultural system, a topic that's been covered by many other books in one way or another, but Pollan provides a good overview to the problems this system presents us. I didn't...

  • Invention of Hugo Cabret

    This is the Caldecott Award winner with the most pages ever. The detailed pictures are fascinating. Brian Selznick's inventive artwork carries the bulk of the story line.

  • "Schuyler's Monster" by Rob Rummel-Hudson

    Before there were blogs, there were online journals and diaries, and one of the best was Rob's. (He's been at a bunch of different URLs, but the current one is here .) He's a very funny writer, usually tending toward the cynical and sarcastic. But that changed somewhat when he became a father...

  • "The Impressionist" by Hari Kunzru

    One of the hardest tasks a librarian faces is getting rid of a book that he or she treasures. Today I was reviewing a cart of books that one of the clerks had pulled for me and stalled when I reached "The Impressionist" by Hari Kunzru. A report that I had done showed that it had only been checked...

  • How Ya Like Me Now

    I've always enjoyed the adult books that Brendan Halpin writes, so I was excited to see a new novel for Young Adults from him. How Ya Like Me Now pulls the reader in pretty quickly, as we meet Eddie just as his life is changing yet again. First his father died, then his mom retreated into whatever...

  • A great book...or THE GREATEST book of all time???

    Last weekend I finished reading Stephen Colbert's epic tome I Am America (and So Can You!) . If you have not done yourself the favor of reading this New York Times Bestseller (previously #1 on the hardcover nonfiction list), DO IT NOW! The fate of the free world rests in your hands. Being a fan of...
