Look for reading ideas? Library staff reveal what is on their summer reading lists.
“Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business” by Charles Duhigg. Lots of interesting stories about how to get motivated to accomplish something. Easy fast read.
“The Rainbow Comes and Goes” by Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt. Easy read, interesting conversation between Mother and Son, so open and intimate.
“Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up” by Marie Kondō. I want to read this to see if I finally get brave enough to “tidy” my house.
I’m enjoying reading for fun! I always loved reading the Nicholas Sparks books, but while I was in school I couldn’t find time to read them along with my assigned texts. So, I’m catching up on those. I have read “The Best of Me” already, and now I’m working on “The Longest Ride.”
“Molecules: The Elements and the Architecture of Everything” by Theodore Gray.
“Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni” by Allan Hayes.
Recently finished/Currently reading:
“Lord of the Flies” by William Golding. I listened to this recently on CD, and it was read by the author. Excellent!
Plan to start soon:
“A Feast for Crows” by George R.R. Martin
“Brooklyn” by Colm Toibin
“Room” by Emma Donoghue
“The Chocolate Cat Caper: A Chocoholic Mystery” by Joanna Carl. A simple and easy mystery.

“Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and Global Order” by Noam Chomsky. I have never been one to indulge on politics, however I wanted to take a breath of new ideas through the Father of Modern Linguistics to perhaps find a medium where I can confidently analyze the ever-changing environment.

“The Weekenders” by Mary Kay Andrews.
