Paula Walters - Friday, September 23, 2011

NCRL’s Book Club collection can be found on our website.  On the right side of our home page click on How Do I, then click on Join a Book Club, scroll down and you will find the book club collection.  Right now the list is a little overwhelming, in the near future we will be tweaking it a bit, dividing the list into fiction, non fiction and classroom collections.  Each month new books are added to the list.  These are books that are requested by our book clubs.  A few of the books added this month are:


“At Home- A Short History of Private Life” by Bill Bryson, this is indeed a history of his private life.  The author walks the reader through his home, explaining how important each room is to him and his family.  If you have read any of Bill Bryson’s books you know he is witty and entertaining.


“Left Neglected” by Lisa Genova  tells the story of Sarah, a wife, mother of three and a successful business women.  She is in a car accident and is recovering from Left Neglect, a neurological impairment.  Sarah must decide where her priorities lie as she struggles through this problem.  Lisa Genova also wrote “Still Alice” which is a book club favorite.


“The Tiger’s Wife” is by Tea Obreht.  She is considered one of the New Yorker’s twenty best American fiction writers under twenty.  This novel takes place in a Balkan country.  Natalia is a young doctor working at an orphanage.  There are secrets that she has not been told about at the orphanage, involving a family digging in the surrounding vineyards. She also has a mystery of her own regarding her grandfather’s resent death.  I have not read this novel but it is certainly is on my list of books to read.


“The False Friend’ is by the author of “Bee Season”, Myla Goldberg.  This is a psychological drama.   Two 11 year old girls, who are best friends and rivals, go into the woods and only one comes out.  One girl disappears and for 20 years the other girl blocks out how it happened.  Twenty years later this young woman returns to her hometown to tell the truth which her family and friends refuse to believe.


“Life” is a memoir by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.  He writes about marriage, family, tours with the Stones, his estrangement from Mick Jagger and their reconciliation.  If you are a Stones fan this is a must!!!


All of these books are available in the book club collection.

Can I just say what a comfort to discover someone that really
understands what they're discussing online. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people have to check this out and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
