Reading is a most enjoyable way to pass the time, especially this time of year when the weather can be quite yucky outside.
Did you know that the library is having a reading blitz on Jan. 27? Read anything, anywhere, for 15 minutes on the 27th, and report back to the library (in Barriere call 260-672-5811) that you’ve done so.
All participants will be entered into a random draw for a Chapters gift card.
The local branch that is determined to be the “readiest” will also win a prize. So – get reading on the 27th and remember to call the library!
Stuck for something to read? Check out these new titles that are now in at the Barriere Library.
Egg Drop Dead, by Laura Childs – Maintaining good personal relationships with their suppliers is one of the secrets of the Cackleberry Club café’s success, so Suzanne doesn’t mind going out to Mike Mullen’s dairy farm to pick up some wheels of cheese.
She’s looking forward to a nice visit with the mild-mannered farmer before heading back to their hectic kitchen. But when she arrives, Mike’s nowhere to be found. The moaning of his cows leads her to look in the barn, where she discovers a bloodcurdling sight—the farmer’s dead body. Apparently not everyone was as fond of Mike Mullen as the Cackleberry Club.
When All the Girls Have Gone, by Jayne Anne Krentz – When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.
Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.
