March 2015

The March display is “North American Road Trip Adventures” – Perhaps some of the titles could inspire you to actually plan that long-desired travel adventure or they might bring simply bring you some stress-free armchair enjoyment. The books and videos run the gamut from funny to wry, from passionate to straight-forward, from reminiscences to how-to – but all are, in their own way, factual and informative. Enjoy the trip(s)!

Science Books Discussion Group

The Science Book Discussion Group is Noel Wien Library’s longest running group. It has been meeting for nearly 20 years and does NOT require any particular background in science. The books chosen are those that would be of interest to the general adult reader with an interest in all aspects of science and technology. Books can be borrowed or purchased at cost ($10 or less, often much less).

February 2015

Here’s a list of the 100 Top Romance Authors that came out of a survey by the All About Romance web page in 2013. Actually, the site was looking for a readers’ list of favorite Romance BOOKS and noticed that many authors received nominations for several of their books – but that no one book of these authors ended up being a clear top 100 TITLE. When the tally was by author, the result was quite different from the tally by title. So, here’s the author list. If you are interested in the results of All About Romance’s annual Best Books poll, go to www.likesbooks.com. You’ll find lots of other information, reviews, and several nifty lists for those who enjoy romantic reads, too.
