Nancy's Notes, August 22, 2008
We will begin our moving process on September 8. The movers plan on being here for five days and then we will need a little time to get up and running. Our opening date in our temporary location, across from Casey’s, will be September 18. Make sure to come in the first week of September to stock up on reading materials.
We have been busy weeding materials for the move. There are many books for sale in the entryway as well as in the program room in our basement. A bag of books sells for only $1.00 or you may purchase them individually for $.25. If you are traveling it’s nice to pick up these discards so if they are lost on the trip no one cares.
Lauren Weisberger, author of “The Devil Wears Prada”, is back with “Chasing Harry Winston”. It is the story of three different young women who have been best friends for a decade. As they near thirty they’re looking toward their future, but despite all they’ve earned-first class travel, career promotions, invitations to the right parties, they’re not quite sure they like what they see. One Saturday night Adriana and Emmy make a pact: within a single year, each will drastically change her life. Leigh watches from the sidelines, not making any promises, but she soon discovers she has the most to lose. Their friendship is forever, but everything else is on the table. Three best friends, two resolutions, and one year to pull it off.
Iris Johansen has joined forces with Roy Johansen to write “Silent Thunder”. The story begins as marine architect Hannah Bryson has been given the opportunity of a lifetime. A U.S. maritime museum has just acquired the former Soviet submarine Silent Thunder. The decommissioned sub is to be used for public exhibition. Hannah must inspect every inch of the vessel and design modifications that will make it safe for visitors. She enlists the help of her brother, Connor to help her delve into its lethal history. On a routine check, Connor discovers a mysterious message behind one of the ship’s panels. Before he can figure out what it means there’s a deadly assault on Silent Thunder.
Jacquelyn Mitchard’s “Midnight Twins” is the first of a new trilogy. It explores the unearthly connection between the Brynn sisters. After battling a mysterious fire on the night of their thirteenth birthday the identical twins, Meredith and Mallory, awaken in the hospital with terrifying new powers. Merry can see into the past and Mally can see into the future.
Come in during the next couple of weeks to pick up reading materials: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. or Thursday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
