Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - A lovely romantic story about a young lady who becomes a caregiver for a quadriplegic man and how their relationship develops in unexpected ways. (PT)

The Round House by Louise Erdrich. I just highly recommended this to a patron who seemed uncertain about the choice but went away looking forward to the read. JMA


What should you read next?

¿Ya tienes en mente cuál será el libro que te vas a leer cuando termines el de ahora?

We Rode The Orphan Trains by Andrea Warren I gave this to a young lady who needed a non-fiction book for summer reading. 6/26/13 BM

The Tender Bar : A Memoir by J. R. Moehringer. Recommended to a patron during her last visit and she stopped by to say how much she enjoyed and appreciated this suggestion. PT & AM

Patron who just finished The Dinner by Herman Koch wanted another good read; I recommended Schroder by Amity Gaige, another unnerving but fantastic story. (SHA)

When did I get like this?

Just recommended When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead--to an adult patron! He was looking for books that were as good as The Giver, and this is one of my favorites. (SHA)

53 Books You Won't Be Able To Put Down

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon | 53 Books You Won't Be Able To Put Down

A patron asked me for a book recommendation while we happened to be standing in front of this book. In my humble opinion, it is perhaps The Most Charming Book Ever Written. Read it and smile. (AKS)

I have a patron who enjoys my Nordic crime picks so I shared Sara Blaedel with her. It's the second of 3 books, but you don't need to read them in sequence. It is my preferred way, but I'm trying to be flexible! (AKS)

This is a powerful book I have recommended to a number of patrons. (AKS) Five Days At Memorial : Life And Death In A Storm-ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink

Patron said she needed a good read AND to build her TBR pile--so how could I resist The End Of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe?

I had a patron come to the desk to tell me she enjoyed my recommendation of Before I Go To Sleep. I mentioned a review I read of the The Silent Wife : A Novel by A. S. A. Harrison so she wanted to go on hold. Another patron overheard and also went on hold. Then I added my own name to the list. (AKS)
