STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS FOR

SUMMER READING

Summer is here and it is the time of year that many people finally get a change to read strictly for pleasure.  All of our staff members are avid readers and we decided to share some of our favorite books with you.
 
JILL:  The number one writer I would suggest for strictly fun reading is Janet Evanovich.  Her inept bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, provides lots of laughs as she fumbles through bringing "bad guys" to justice.  Her colorful family, coworkers, and romantic interests provide lots of zany entertainment.   On a more serious note, I highly recommend News of the World by Paulette Jiles.  It takes place right after the Civil War and tells the story of a news reader traveling cross country who agrees to deliver a young girl who was captured by Indians back to her family.  If you like intelligent mystery series I would recommend Donna Leon and Louise Penny.
 
CONNIE:  For non-fiction readers Connie recommends any of Malcolm Gladwell's books and books by Sarah Vowell. She doesn't normally read short story anthologies but finds that, for vacation reading when it can be difficult to concentrate, short stories are a perfect fit.  When reading short stories she has discovered many new authors and new subjects to pursue.
 
SHIRLEY:  For those who like mysteries, but not blood and gore, Shirley recommends the Carrot Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke and the Benni Harper mystery series by Earlene Fowler.   For religious fiction fans she recommends Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon.  She also recommends The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman for those who enjoy a true story from the World War II era.  The keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved over 300 refugees by hiding them in empty animal cages.
 
CURTIS:  For Michael Crichton fans Curtis recommends his latest paperback, Dragon Teeth. It combines action, science and history for an entertaining tale.  Curtis and I are both fans of the Elvis Cole mystery series by Robert Crais and he recommends the first book in the series, The Monkey's Raincoat.  For western fans, Curtis likes Telegraph Days by Larry McMurtry. 
 
HOWARD:  Howard suggests two of his favorite books that would work for either adults or young adults:  Rifles for Watie by Harold Keith and Childhood's End (science fiction) by Arthur C. Clarke.  He also recommends two non-fiction books:  Genesis Revisited by Zecharia Sitchin and Snake, the autobiography of Ken Stabler.  He also likes The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, an entertaining novel of mystery and self discovery.
 
TERRY:  Terry tends to like the unconventional and recommends the comic novels, The Year of the Hare by Arto Paasilnna and The Island of the Sequined Love Nun by Christopher Moore.  He also recommends Not on Fire But Burning by Greg Hrbek and Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller.  Another novel he recommends that could be read by adults or young adults is Looking for Alaska by John Green. 

HEATHER: For light summer reading, Heather always enjoys Nora Robert trilogies, and has been reading a lot by Emily March Sherryl Woods.  Both are heartwarming, happy novelists.
 
I hope this will give you some new ideas for a summer of reading fun!
