The WordPress.com stats helpers prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Click on the graphic to see our blog year in review!
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.
We are already looking forward–the January 2014 book order just arrived, and I am unpacking new fiction titles by Sue Monk Kidd, E. L. Doctorow, Jack Higgins, Martha Grimes, Stuart Woods, Guillermo Rosales and Ismael Beah. New nonfiction includes biographies of Edmund Burke, John Wooden, legendary coach of the UCLA Bruins basketball team, and an autobiography by Congressman Keith Ellison, My Country ‘Tis of Thee.
Also in the offing, two releases by CIA officers tell much, but not all–Robert Gate’s Duty and John Rizzo’s Company Man. It should be interesting to compare the two tales. Other nonfiction releases cover subjects ranging from adaptogens to French pastry, American craftsmen to the App Generation, D. F. Swaab perusing how We Are Our Brains and Alan Lightman exploring The Accidental Universe.
Looking back or looking ahead, come on in to The Community Library, which thrives through the generous donations of residents and visitors alike, and where library cards, internet access and wifi are free to all comers. Welcome!
