If you’re curious about the preloaded Nook readers we have at the Field Library (and if you haven’t tried one of them, you absolutely should, but that’s another post), this is a great time to come in and take one for a spin (so to speak), because several of the Nooks have been loaded with new books.
The Romance Nook (#13) has 19 new books loaded into it, ranging from Erotica (Bound by Bliss) to Regency (The Reluctant Duchess, A Rogue by Any Other Name) to contemporary (Worth the Fall, Leaving Amarillo) to paranormal (Dark Prince, Christine Feehan’s first book in the Dark series). Whatever your taste in romance, there’s sure to be something new on this Nook that you’ll enjoy.
This is a good month for music on the Nonfiction Nook (#2): new additions include Greg Allman’s autobiography, My Cross to Bear, and Amy, My Daughter, a biography by Mitch Winehouse. There’s also Brutal: The Untold Story of My Life Inside Whitey Bulger’s Irish Mob, by Kevin Weeks, a fascinating companion read to the recently released Johnny Depp movie, Black Mass. Not to mention books on science (Periodic Tales: A Cultural History of the Elements, Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe’s Hidden Dimensions) and fascinating human drama (Wish You Happy Forever: What China’s Orphans Taught Me About Moving Mountains). All this and more waits on the Nonfiction Nook.
A mix of classics and new books has been added to the Mystery/Thriller Nook (#3), including the first of the Molly Murphy books by Rhys Bowen, Murphy’s Law, goodies by Allison Brennan (Cold Snap), Martha Grimes (The Old Silent), and Archer Mayor (Three Can Keep a Secret) and the newest book from Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone series, X.
Likewise there’s a broad selection of new material on the Science Fiction and Fantasy Nook (#10), including the first of the Tiffany Aching books in the late great Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, The Wee Free Men (and if you haven’t read any of the Tiffany Aching books, you’re missing a treat, so this is a great place to start). New books range from military science fiction (Warship, Call to Arms) to warped dark humorous fantasy (The Fear Institute, a book in the Johannes Cabal series which is another series that is filled with dark inside jokes) to fantastic mystery of the Harry Dresden sort (Working for Bigfoot) to Clifford Simak’s classic of aliens on earth, Way Station. Check out the breadth of science fiction and fantasy by sampling the goodies on this Nook.
