On Display

If you are feeling like a little time away from the keyboard, AFK if you like abbreviations, but still want to get great book recommendations, why not head to the Main Library in the coming days. Our ongoing series of book displays highlighting staff picks is ready for viewing. The display includes flyers of each person’s selections so you can take their recommendations with you to ponder further if you are so inclined.

Two contributors to A Reading Life are highlighted this time around which makes the display doubly interesting: Ron & Richard

If you aren’t familiar with Ron’s exuberant and hilarious posts from our blog, you should be. From punk, both steam and otherwise, to mystery, historical fiction, graphic novels and, of course, zombies, Ron can recommend many fascinating and engrossing titles. Just try to resist picking up a title like To Say Nothing of the Dog, or How We Found the Bishop’s Stump at Last. We dare you.

Let’s face it, Richard has “issues”. But these issues can result in intriguing item recommendations. Be it disquieting short story collections, the perils of space travel, Italian detectives, Japanese pop nihilism, or killing time at the airport there is something here for all of us who are ever so slightly disturbed. In a good way, one hopes.

So much to choose from, so little time. Come and ponder the display while it lasts.
