Quite a bit came in by way of memorial money this past month, and lo and behold they want us to buy books. So books we will buy.
Already have some new movies. Robin Hood, Prince of Persia, Tinker Bell’s new movie as well as Iron Man 2. Come ceck them out. A new series from author Tamera Alexander The Inheirtance.
Wow tons of new things to give you. Hope you enjoy them. I already have read several of them.
In adult books, a new Christian fiction author series that I discovered, Tamera Alexander- Timber Ridge Relections. We have all three books in the series- From a Distance, Beyond this Moment and Within my Heart. I haven’t read all them yet. The one I did read is excellent.
We got the rest of the Indigo Tea Shop series. There are 11 books in this series. I think several people will enjoy those as well. Karen Kingsbury just keeps writing and writing and writing. We have two more of hers, Take Four in the Above the Line series. I think it’s the last in this series. Also have a Timeless Love one called-Time to Embrace. Jude Deveraux has a new one in her Edilean series, Scarlet Nights. Have several new kids books coming as well. Will post more when I get those.
We are thrilled to be able to report that Nebraska has acquired a 3.6 million dollar grant from the Federal Government and the Gates Foundation to upgrade electronics across the state. Over 140 libraries will get not only new computers, but printers and some will get projectors. We are supposed to get three new computers, a printer/multi-function machine and a powerpoint. We are to learn more about it in the next couple of months.
Some of the new items we have are Theodore Boone by John Grisham. This is a different style for him. It’s written for the teen audience. Also for teens is a new House of Night novel by P C Cast-Burned. Terri Blackstock has a new one-predator. Rather spooky, in my opinion. Hannah’s List from Debbie Macomber is a winner. You can’t help but love Michael as he bumbles through dating and falling in love again.
New audiobook by Anita Shreve- Body Surfing. Got a bunch of new things coming. So I’ll keep you updated.
The new Debbie Macomber book, Hannah’s list and theCarol Higgins Clark, Wrecked are here. Also, we have the DVD- It’s complicated, starring Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin.
Some of the new items this week are the DVD-Fantastic Mr Fox, a couple of new easy readers, Bubble Trouble and Bad Frogs. The biography of Oprah, called, not surprisingly, Oprah.

These are number 1 and 2 in the series, 3 will be coming next month.
