"The Soul of an Octopus" by Sy Montgomery

“A quick, easy read with a straight-forward story about work the author did writing about several different octopi at different aquariums. While following her interactions with individual octopi she includes many fascinating facts about them that I never knew. It is sad because the lifespan of the animals is relatively short but her love of her subject really comes through." – Elena

"The Name of the Wind: Book 1 of the Kingkiller Chronicles" by Patrick Rothfuss

"This is a book that I wouldn’t just recommend to someone who likes fantasy. It is a fantasy and there is magic, but the writing is so good that it casts a spell on you.” – Wake

Tightrope book cover

"Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope" by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn

"With compassion and empathy, this riveting work of non-fiction addresses the high-wire act of simply surviving in many pockets of rural America and offers hopeful solutions. A focus on the author’s former school classmates in Yamhill, Oregon, brings a human face to issues like drug addiction, incarceration, family dysfunction, and declining prospects for employment, reminding us that these are people, not statistics.” –Norma
