Staff Summer e-book Picks

Posted by Staff

Many of the staff regularly download e-books and we use a variety of types of readers (Nooks, Kindles, Sonys, phones, tablets, computers, the list goes on).  To request and/or checkout e-books, visit Overdrive and follow the instructions (or download one of our PDFs).  You will need your barcode and PIN; if you have questions, give us a call and the circ staff can help you with the process.

Following were some of our favorite summer e-reads:
The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baster.  A fantastic collaboration between these two well known sci-fi authors.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.  A prize winning young adult book that is very readable for adults.

Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit by Barry Estabrook.  A fascinating look at the recent history of the tomato and why the quintesential summer food disappoints us at the grocery store.

The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian.  An historical love story from Syria 1915 to New York 2012.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  A woman disappears on the day of her 5th anniversary.  Is her husband a killer???

A Taste For Death by P.D. James.  One of the early Inspector Dalgliesh novels, it is a classic, good British mystery.

Heaven is Small by Emily Schultz.  A great summer read about a man who lands a job at a romance publishing house and suspects that he really is in Heaven.

The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne.  A sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  A little adventure, a little action, and a little old-fashioned sci-fi make this classic a good choice.
