Writing this as a staff member of the Scranton Library in Madison, CT.
Hello again and welcome to another edition of The Scranton Page Turner. For those of you who are visiting for the first time, I’ll give a little refresher. The Scranton Page Turner came about because my library director at Scranton Library in Madison, Connecticut recognized my voracious appetite for books. She approached me in September and asked if I’d be interested in writing a readers advisory for our local online news site:
Madison Patch. You can read her welcoming blog at Madison Patch:
New Reader Advisory
Scranton Page Turner will publish three times a month on Tuesdays. The first and third Tuesday will be books that I’ve read. The second Tuesday will consist of books staff and others involved with The Scranton Library have read. Seeing as this is the second Tuesday we are writing Staff Tuesday today.
The Daily Coyote
Based on a blog, this book tells the story of Shreve Stockton and her plan to travel from San Francisco to New York. Instead she stops in Wyoming and makes her home there. While in Wyoming, she takes in an orphaned coyote who becomes a part of her family. After Marilyn described this book I decided to put it on my list.
Riddle of the Sands
Alma said this is one of the first and one of the best spy novels.
The Riddle of the Sands is the story of two young men who sail to a group of islands off the Dutch coast only to discover a secret German naval base, and an enemy armada preparing to invade England. Being that mysteries and adventure/spy novels are a favorite of mine, this may have to go on my exponentially expanding book list as well.
A Monster Calls:
inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd
A young boy whose mother has a fatal illness wakes up in the middle of the night to find a monster outside his bedroom window. What could said monster want?
Until next time…
