Is work keeping you at home this summer? Are airline baggage charges just too outrageous to even think about flying? Then why not take an exciting, thrilling, and slightly dangerous trip right from the comfort of your favorite chair by reading a mystery from your favorite library that is set in a faraway place. Its cheaper,easier, and you never have to put your shampoo in a smaller container.
We have mysteries from all over the world. There are titles that are set in all seven continents thanks to Robert Masello, whose Blood and Ice is set in Antarctica. So pick a geographic region and start exploring the "Crimes in the Cold Climes"; be tempted by "Trouble in the Tropics", or dedicate yourself to reading about "Death in the Desert". I have created and printed out lists of authors who set their books in specific geographic regions and I'd also be happy to email the lists to you also. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy Reading and Traveling!
p.s. I also have another fun list for your to check out - books that feature real people solving imaginary crimes.
Hello, I'm Angela Palmer and I get to wear many different hats (and the occasional crown) here at the Library. One of my favorite hats is that of Enlightened Empress of Book Suggestions (also known as The Book Pusher Chapeau). When I put it on I get the opportunity to share my love, enjoyment, and pure fun and pleasure that I get from reading - I truly love helping people find new books and authors!
Don’t know what to read next? Looking for a new author? Give me a call at-767-6625, send me an email, or come by and see me at the Library. I hope that I can share some of my finds and favorites with you in this blog and in person.
"The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae" by Stephanie Laurens
"Third Grave Dead Ahead" by Darynda Jones
What I'm Listening To...
"In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin " by Erik Larson
Bee Cave Book Club
Our book club is a fun, informal, and diverse group who come together once a month to discuss the group-selected fiction or nonfiction title. During the hour members share laughter, ideas, and their love of books, including all the wonderful titles they have and are reading. We love to welcome new members and encourage other readers to come when their schedule permits or if a book is of particular interest to them. We hope that you will join us for a meeting-even if you have not read the book for that evening. To see a list of monthly selections for the 2012 Bee Cave Book Club please click here.
