What the Buena Park Library Staff is reading RIGHT NOW!!

Here is the list of current staff picks and it appears to be divided fairly evenly between fiction and non-fiction titles. Stephenie Meyers tops the list as the most popular author (with 4 books listed). Do you see anything that you'd like to add to your reading list?

Dewey : The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron and Bret Witter. (being read by Louise Mazerov, Director)
Louise didn't mention if she was enjoying the book or not --- but I read the book --- and loved it!! It's rather like a Marley and Me, but for cats. You find out all about Dewey (the cat) as well as a lot about small town life in Spencer, Iowa.

Paula R. is reading 2 books right now:
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein & Save Me From Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs and Lived To Tell my Story by Brian "Head" Welch.

Lynn P. is reading The 731 Legacy : a Cotten Stone Mystery by Lynn Sholes and Joe Moore.

Mary I. is reading Ethics, Evil, and Fiction by Colin McGinn & The Oxford History of the Roman World by John Boardman.

Phyllis N. (our Teen Librarian) is reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. (We have quite a few holds for this title -- so, don't worry Phyllis is not taking one of our copies out of circulation -- she borrowed the book from her daughter.) Maribel M. is also reading this.

Patricia R. is reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer. She says: "Read it! It's good!" and gives it 5 stars. She is also reading another teen/young adult novel: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and gives it 4 stars.

More books by Stephenie Meyers: Ashley P. is reading Breaking Dawn. Katrina L. is reading Eclipse.

Bruce P. is reading Smogtown: The Lung-Burning History of Pollution in Los Angeles. He says that: "This is an entertaining book about L.A.s attempt to overcome air pollution dating back to 1943 and continuing to the present."

Jose B. is reading Testimony by Anita Shreve. Josie says: "I love all her books."

Caroline E. is reading The Thieves of Faith by Richard Doetsch.

Cynthia F. is reading Keith Richards : A Biography by Victor Bockris.

Tony D. is reading Library and Information Center Management (this 'fascinating' title is for school -- Tony is going to "Library School"!!!) & he's also managing to squeeze in a little light reading for fun: Foundation by Isaac Asimov.

Heather M. just finished the last book of The Baroque Cycle (Quicksilver, The Confusion, The System of the World.) by Neil Stephenson.

Daniel M. is reading I'm With the Band by Pamela Des Barres.

Please feel free to post your comments about what you are reading now.
