HOT BOOKS

  • The%20Giver%20of%20Stars%20by%20Jojo%20Moyes.jpg100.jpg

    THE GIVER OF STARS
    by Jojo Moyes This story is rooted in depression-era Kentucky history when brave, unconventional, and dedicated women known as the Pack Horse Librarians mounted horses and, often in treacherous conditions, took books to people isolated in the hills who had no other access to book knowledge. The program was known as Eleanor Roosevelt’s traveling library initiative.
  • The%20Body%20%20by%20Bill%20Bryson.jpg%20100.jpg

    THE BODY
    by Bill Bryson After reading this book, you will be amazed at YOU! Bryson skillfully, and with his signature humor, invites you to realize the magnificence of your body. We tend to take it for granted and simply expect it to perform flawlessly for us. But after absorbing the information in this book, the reader can’t help but be in awe and appreciation of its design.
  • Becoming%20Mrs.%20Lewis.jpg100.jpg

    BECOMING MRS. LEWIS
    by Patti Callahan If you are a devotee of the writings of C. S. Lewis, you will be enchanted with this story of poet and writer Joy Davidman and her unintended and surprising relationship with Lewis. Much to their astonishment (especially his!), their meeting turned into a blissful love story which ultimately led Joy to “becoming Mrs. Lewis.”
  • Evvie%20Drake%20Starts%20Over.jpg%20100.jpg

    EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER
    by Linda Holmes When young, recently widowed Evvie Drake rents a room in her home to help with expenses, an unlikely series of events starts. The person who comes to rent the space is a depressed Major League baseball player who is in a slump and concerned his sport career is over. It is fun to watch a remarkable transformation that takes place in both of them. The story is a funny, upbeat look at how two “broken” people can help each other find meaning, hope, and happiness again.
