Whuzzup at the 'ol Biblioteca

Books Under 200 Words!
From Library Stuff blog: see Still in need of a better search interface, this is a list of books that many of our less-than-enthusiastic readers might enjoy.

Books to Watch For
John Grisham’s Playing for pizza

Peter Hoeg, The quiet girl. This is Peter Hoeg’s first new novel in 10 years. You may remember him as the author of Smilla's sense of snow . No word about the setting. Or if it’s another freezing sleuth novel.

Ken Follet has written the sequel to Pillars of the earth. The new title, World without end, takes place in the same town but 200 years later. While Pillars was critically acclaimed and well received by the public, some Follet purists did not like him straying from the thriller path. Be ready for some surprised readers.

Fun Fact:
25% of Romance Readers who want new titles use the Library to read them. “Big Box” stores like Costco or Target have a larger percentage. Everything else is lower, including: chain bookstores, online, and independent bookstores (Publisher’s Weekly)
