Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of eighty-two she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 2,000 miles to water. If this intrigues you join the Dover Public Library's Book Group to discuss Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper. We will meet on Monday, June 20 at 6:30pm in the Trustees Room. Hope to see you there!

The Boys in the Boat | Daniel James Brown. Book Club 2015. "The wood, Pocock murmured, taught us about survival, about overcoming difficulty, about prevailing over adversity, but it also taught us something about the underlying reason for surviving in the first place. Something about infinite beauty, about undying grace, about things larger and greater than ourselves. About the reasons we were all here."

The most recent edition to my all-time favorite book list. I'm not sure I've reread the final pages of a book more than Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. I was surprised by how much I loved this novel.
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, Robin Sloan Man, is this book fun — especially for any book nerd who isn’t in denial about living in the modern age. If you love physical books (the smell! the feel!) but wouldn’t give up your iPhone for any reason, if you like puzzles and geeky allusions and bookish cults and quests, then this book is for you. It also glows in the dark.
The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon away from life as a San Francisco web-design drone and into the aisles of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after a few days on the job, Clay discovers that the store is more curious than either its name or its gnomic owner might suggest. The bookstore’s secrets extend far beyond its walls
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, Robin Sloan We’ve been big fans of this book since it first appeared this October, and how could we not be? It merges our two favorite things — old books and the internet — giving each powerful force its due. Also there is a band of merry nerds on a quest to find the truth about a book cult. Seriously, why have you not read this yet?

Need to put on my to read list A well-researched historical novel about the improbable love story of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his tempestuous American wife, Fanny.
The author of "Loving Frank" imagines the improbable love story of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his tempestuous American wife, Fanny. By the same author who wrote 'Loving Frank', which I enjoyed. Looking forward to this one!

"Now, Horan’s second novel, “Under the Wide and Starry Sky,” carries on this burgeoning genre with the story of 19th-century Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his American wife, Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne. The latest pick for the “Today” show’s book club, it’s operatic, global in its settings and dead-on in its portrayal of pre-feminism-era women and their limited opportunities." -Washington Post
