So many new books!

So many new arrivals on our shelves since our last post!  The range is quite broad with the much anticipated new James Patterson novel, “Never, Never”, for starters. At the other end of the thriller/mystery spectrum is Alyssa Maxwell’s much lighter “A Pinch of Poison.” In between are books by J.D. Robb, Sarah Pinborough and many other great writers of fiction.

Our non fiction offerings are many and varied with a coincidental emphasis on the human mind.  Books like “This close to happy” “Perpetual Now” and  “The Nature Fix” round out a varied selection of new non-fiction stars. Here is our list of the latest and greatest:

At the Wead Library we are proud of our substantial audio book collection. Many audio books have been donated by generous patrons. Others we purchase. Our latest purchase includes some of today’s best selling books on CD as well as some of the newest fiction on the market.
