Savvy patrons know to check out the shelves behind the Readers Services desk for timely displays as well as a selection of “What the Staff Is Reading” recommendations. But hey — why should we limit these gems just to staff selections? What have you read lately that you’ve enjoyed? Any time you want to gush about the latest book you just couldn’t put down — or an old favorite that has never received the attention it deserves — just mention your favorite title to a Readers Services staff member and we’ll see it gets a hearty St. Charles Public Library “shout out.” Here are some recent titles we’ve heard good things about:
At Home: A Short History of Private Life – by Bill Bryson
Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide – by Nicholas D. Kristof
Murder in the Marais – by Cara Black
The Widower’s Tale – by Julia Glass
So Big — Edna Ferber
PS – you can also tell us about movies or TV shows that have captured your fancy. It’s all good.
