What You Read in 2013

For some, fun times in 2013 meant reading and sharing what you’ve read on our Facebook page, where we asked at least weekly “what are you reading?” Thank you! We had a great time listening to you and wanted to share with everyone of some of the titles you suggested.

For your convenience, we’ve broken up your list into fiction and nonfiction and provided links to the titles available for check out. These aren’t all recently released books, but some of the oldies-but-goodies might be new to you. If you don’t find something that you would like to check out, leave a comment at the bottom with titles you recommend. Thanks.

What are you waiting for? Use your library card today! Then after you’ve finished the book, come back into the library (or visit us online) to tell us what you think.

    Nice list! How about a little love for N0S4A2 by Joe Hill??

  • Lisa Coble-Krings

    Totally missed that one… ooops, sorry. Our Facebook friends did mention that book by Stephen King’s son. I hear it’s very scary. A couple of our librarians really liked Joe Hill’s N0S4A2 too. Please watch their video book review: http://tscpl.org/books-movies-music/all-booked-up-nos4a2-by-joe-hill/
