I'm about to head out on an oversees trip and packing is always a source of anxiety and worry for me before big trips like this. So I was very happy to see this title among the Library's new books and checked it out straightaway.

This compact little book is full of lots of practical advice for efficient, hassle-free packing and includes blank packing lists at the end to photocopy and have on hand for future trips. I took lots of notes and really needed the sample packing lists.

I still need to carefully consider and plan what clothing I will pack, as my wardrobe is not as well-defined and composed as the author's own wardrobe seems...

This is a teen science fiction story that I found very enjoyable.  It appears to be the first book in the series and I’m looking forward to the next one.  Neomi is a young soldier defending her planet from Earth.  Abel is a one of a kind “mech” or robot who was left behind for 30 years in an abandoned space ship.  They meet as a result of a battle and start on an adventure to save her planet by sacrificing Abel.   Along the way they learn about the politics of the solar system as well as themselves.  There’s plenty of adventure, just a bit of romance and an ending that leaves you waiting for more....

For all the World War II historical fiction fans, this one is for you.  This story takes place in France, on the eve of D-Day.  The story centers on the main character, Emma, a bread maker.  This is her story of the extraordinary lengths she goes to sustain her village during the German occupation.  A great story of resilience, perseverance and sacrifice.

If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall.  This is a book about what it takes to get back up and wholeheartedly go another round.  The author, Brene Brown, is a researcher who doesn’t write “feel good and get over it lessons”.  Instead, she writes about common denominators of people who find themselves face down in the arena and work through the pain, shame, fear, etc. to pull themselves up and get back into life....

An interesting twist for a basic “star crossed” love story.  Very clever dialogue and an easy read.  A great beach book. Check our catalog
