New Arrivals, week of April 5th, 2017

As promised, here is a list of all new non-fiction books that have found a home on our shelves over the past two weeks. Topics are across the board and run from a book on Hitler’s limousine to one on sleep and how getting a full nights sleep is a relatively new development in human history. Who knew we were a species of nappers by nature?

The best seller , “The stranger in the woods” also promises to be a good read. It covers the life of a real modern day hermit recently found after thirty years in the deep woods of Maine. He hadn’t spoken to another human the entire time! These and many more non-fiction books are here for your enjoyment. If you traditionally read only fiction, this would be a great time to give a try to the Wead Library’s awesome non-fiction collection. It covers every possible topic and so many interesting people.
