Introducing LibraryReadsPosted: August 31, 2014
LibraryReads is a monthly list of the top ten new books nominated by librarians around the country. As a librarian I can request digital copies of books before they are published, and I am one of the librarians who read and nominated Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.
The September Library Reads booklist is here :
Finally, a hard to put down post-apocalyptic novel that isn’t bleak and violent. I don’t always enjoy books with multiple points of view that also move back and forward in time, but I loved this book. The main characters are all connected to Arthur Leander, who is performing as King Lear in Toronto as a flu epidemic is spreading around the globe. Later, we encounter the Symphony, a traveling orchestra and Shakespeare troupe traveling around western Michigan.
Lists from the last year are also available, making LibraryReads a great place to look for reading suggestions.
