May 16th Newspaper Column

Freeze warnings may be a recent memory for us in Green Lake, but the publishing world is completely in summer blockbuster mode. This month has seen an embarrassment of riches in the form of new books by favorite authors. I may not be ready for the beach, but your reading list is.

Here are a few of the highly-anticipated offerings that we currently have:


Mom & Me & Mom – Maya Angelou

Life After Life – Kate Atkinson

The Hit – David Baldacci

Inferno – Dan Brown

Dead Ever After – Charlaine Harris

The Woman Upstairs – Claire Messud

12th of Never – James Patterson

Cooked – Michael Pollan

Lean In – Sheryl Sandberg

Silken Prey – John Sandford

Don’t Go – Lisa Scottoline

Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls – David Sedaris


All these (and many more) have arrived in just the past few weeks. Big books by big name authors will continue to arrive throughout June. If you are wondering about your favorites, just ask. Chances are we’ve got it on order, but try as we might we don’t catch them all. We always take reader requests, too – look for the “Wish List” can on the front checkout desk.

Our wish for you is Happy Summer Reading!
