October is a fine month for reading, as the weather turns and termination dust appears on the peaks above The Valley. We’ve just received our delivery of early October releases. New nonfiction titles include Love, Life and Elephants by Dame Daphne Sheldrick, Into the Fire by Dakota Meyer, Governing the World by Mark Mazower, and a new history of the American northwest by Ann F. Hyde, Empires, Nations and Families. We’ve got books on sub-Saharan Africa, the melting Arctic, the course of Irish history and riding a Harley across the United States. New travel books cover hot spots both literally and figuratively, including National Geographic Guides to Miami and the Keys, Cuba, Colombia and the Caribbean.
We also have a big box of Fiction, Mystery and SF: new releases include books by Orhan Pamuk, Lisa Genova, Mark Helprin, A.M. Homes, Archer Mayor, Robert Olen Butler, Jacqueline Carey, Felix Francis and many more. We have a new Western, City of Rocks by Michael Zimmer, set in the wilds of southeast Idaho. Penny Vincenzi explores Wicked Pleasures. Man Booker prize winner John Banville has released Ancient Light. We’ve added copies of The Secret Book of Frida Kahlo by F. G. Hagenbeck in both English and Spanish translations. And just in time for Halloween, Cracked editor David Wong (the author of the cult horror book John Dies @ the End) has inflicted the creepy sequel, This Book is Full of Spiders (Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It).
From Scandinavian thrillers to Sandra Cisneros, we have something for all our readers on the new book shelves. Come and browse as the leaves fly outside, @The Community Library.
