On March 25th Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules will hit theaters. It is the second movie based on the popular Diary of a winpy Kid graphic Novels by Jeff Kinney. We have all of the Wimpy Kid books available in our collection.
“Whatever you do, don’t ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn’t want to talk about it.
As Greg enters the new school year, he’s eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular.
Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.”
Free review copies of Praise Jerusalem by Augusta Trobaugh (originally published in 2001) are available to any who wish to read and review the book. I think the only catch is that you will need to post your review to www.librarything.com.
For more information on obtaining a review ebook copy, contact editor Deborah Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be able to give you more information.
Here is some information about the book:
Fans of southern novels that explore the complex relationships between white families and their black hired help will find a compelling story about race relations in PRAISE JERUSALEM. Amelia, an aging Georgia matron forced by money woes to move in with two other elder women—outlandishly preachy Maybelline and take-no-nonsense Mamie, who is black—begins to confront her childhood memories of the black women who worked for her family. Their lives, both tragic and yet sublimely proud, haunt Amelia even now, as she searches for a way to make peace with the sorrows she innocently observed.
PRAISE JERUSALEM is a rare mix of poignant drama but also wry humor. Both the elder Amelia and her childhood self are primly rebellious and irrepressible; Amelia’s sharp eye for petty human foibles never fails her.

The Lincoln Lawyer, slated to hit theaters on March 18th, is based on a book of the same name written by Michael Connelly in 2005. The book is available as part of our collection:
Mickey Haller has spent all his professional life afraid that he wouldn’t recognize innocence if it stood right in front of him. But what he should have been on the watch for was evil.
Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend the clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It’s no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients.
From bikers to con artists to drunk drivers and drug dealers, they’re all on Mickey Haller’s client list. But when a Beverly Hills rich boy is arrested for brutally beating a woman, Haller has his first high-paying client in years. It’s a franchise case and he’s sure it will be a slam dunk in the courtroom. For once, he may be defending a client who is actually innocent.
But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face-to-face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame. To escape without being burned, Haller must use all of his skills to manipulate a system in which he no longer believes.
