CommunityLibraryLogo-color

The Community Library now has 10 circulating Nooks packed with ebooks that may be checked out just like a regular bound book.  Each Nook holds dozens of books to choose from–we plan on continuing to add highly popular titles throughout the year.  Current bestseller titles include Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, Creole Belle by Randy Wayne White, the first four books in George RR Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, Mark Salzman’s new release, The Man in the Empty Boat and a trilogy that starts with ‘Fifty Shades’.

The Nooks are divided into three series–Series One titles are shared over 4 Simple Touches, and features short stories by Michael Connelly and Lee Child that are not available in print form.  The Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson leads the nonfiction titles, joined by works by Jack Abramoff, Rachel Maddow, Mimi Alford and Robert K. Massie.  Fiction writers in this series include John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Hilary Mantel, Jeffrey Deaver, Kim Stanley Robinson and E.L. James.

Series Two titles are shared by our two older first and second generation Nooks.  The Nook2 series includes the Hunger Games trilogy, mysteries by Dana Stabenow,  Archer Mayor and Arthur Conan Doyle, and the bestselling ebook romance Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan.

The 4 newest Series Three Nook Simple Touches have been loaded with our most recent releases, including many titles by authors attending this week’s Sun Valley Writers’ Conference:  Last Call at the Oasis by Jessica Yu, China Airborne by James Fallows, Dreaming in Chinese by Deborah Fallows, 3 Among the Wolves by Helen Thayer, and There is No Long Distance Now by Naomi Shihab Nye.  Series 3 also has Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s new book, The Prisoner of Heaven as well as his ebook The Rose of Fire, set in the same bookverse as The Shadow of the Wind.  For readers with an adventurous historical taste, Guy Gavriel Kay’s Sailing to Sarantium and Lord of Emperors explore the tapestry of the Byzantine empire with an edge of fantasy.

Nooks may be placed on hold just like our regular circulating books.  Have any questions?  Just ask one of our librarians.

Coming soon….Ipads!
