Rapid Reviews: what we’ve been reading

It’s a busy time of year here at the library, but we’re still making time to read. Here’s a handful of our current favorites:

 

  • The Night Circus, by Erin Morganstern.  The Night Circus arrives unexpectedly and without warning,  full of magic and all manner of imaginative delights… just like this book.
  • Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. Jacob always thought his grandfather’s tales of his childhood were nothing but stories. But the photographs he discovers began to suggest otherwise – could the dangers his grandfather told him about also be true?
  • Maphead, by Ken Jennings. The former Jeopardy! champion takes a look at maps – why we love them, why some people can’t read them, why Kids These Days Aren’t Learning Geography Like They Used To, and the addictive world of geocashing.

Check out these and many more at the library!
