Recently read a really different book MY LOVELY WIFE.  If you enjoy stories about serial murders you’ll be startled at this story. Can’t remember the author but please Goggle it. Today picked up a right off the press book  THE WIVES  by Tarryn…Continue

Are there any fans of Patterson or Lee Child? Or history readers?

That is terrible about your library. I would really miss mine.

They haven't listed a cause yet, still investigating.  I hope it wasn't arson; that would make it even worse.  I really think that the town will work together to find temporary solutions for borrowers and, hopefully, for computer access also.

So sorry about the loss of your library. I cannot even imagine.  Hope ways can be found to help all get their books and have access to a computer while waiting for the rebuild.

grammyk, what a loss!  I mourn with you.  Do they think that it was arson?

We are devastated here in my little hometown - our Library (and Town Hall in the same building) burned to the ground last night.  I have felt sick about it all day.  I was in the library at least once or twice a week and have been one of their most frequent borrowers.  This is a small town and a lot of people accessed their computer services and reference materials, as well as borrowing books, magazines and movies.  They had an extensive Children's reading room with active programs for kids.  It's such a huge loss.  There are already plans being made and fundraisers started to rebuild and I certainly hope we will be able to do that!  At this point I can still order books through another library in our "system" but there are a lot of older people in town that can't.  My heart is hurting today.

Remember our former eons member/author Anna Jean Mayhew?

We enjoyed her first novel The Dry Grass of August.

got in touch with her today and she let me know that her second novel , Tomorrow's Bread will debut at Quail Ridge Books on March 26. Let's keep an eye out for it!

Hope Carolyn heals well and fast.  May she find many books to enjoy while she is recuperating.
