Attention all you OCP out there! Monk is @ your library!
I love watching Monk on USA channel. I can watch missed episodes by checking out the DVDs from the library. And now ... we have the paperbacks. I really enjoy tossing one into my purse so I can pull it out during those down-times when I'm carting my kids around. Try a couple ... when you're lookin' for a little fluff.

The Island

by Victoria Hislop
Thursday, February 12, 2009

A book with love affairs, WWII history, secrets, family sagas, and a leper colony off the island of Crete. A little bit of everything in a gripping novel that is hard to put down.

Airborn (Book on CD)

by Kenneth Oppel
Thursday, February 12, 2009

A creatively original Victorian era fantasy where airships are one of the major modes of transportation.The style has been compared to that of Jules Verne with adventures, storms, pirates, strange creatures and a bit of romance.The descriptions of the airships makes it possible to believe that they really existed.The last 1/3 of the book is a “page-turner’ with non-stop action.A very captivating fantasy written for upper elementary age readers, but also a “great read” for adults, too.

This was a spellbinding true story of a young man who graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, gave away his money to charity and went to Alaska. The film shows his quest for giving up the easy life and the people he met on the way who helped him reach his goal. He broke all contact with his family and a lot of the film is told in the words of his sister. Really worth watching.

This is a humorous and entertaining descriptive narrative of Bryson’s experiences hiking the Appalachian Trail in the 1990s. It also includes great background about the history, wildlife, and fragile environment of the Appalachian Trail, one of Eastern America’s treasured wilderness areas.
