Have you heard about The Great American Read? This summer PBS is conducting a search to discover “America’s Favorite Novel”. They’ve already released a list of 100 titles to vote on that were chosen by a survey of American readers conducted earlier this year. The list is eclectic including titles from Fifty Shades of Grey to Little Women to One Hundred Years of Solitude. The series premiere is tonight, the 22nd, on PBS. You can read more about it at their website and go to our Books page to see a link to the titles in our catalog. Will you be watching? @greatamericanreadpbs #thegreatamericanread #cplreads #greatbooks #catcherintherye #greatreadpbsTullia just bought a basketful of used books! 📚 All proceeds from Friends of the Library book sales go towards more fabulous library programs and services!!Sue from Sunset recommends this year’s Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, Less by Andrew Sean Greer. #cplreads #stickynotereviews #cplstaffpicks #pulitzerprize #andrewseangreerDid you know that May is Short Story Month? Short stories are so satisfying — most can be read in the time it takes to eat a bowl of cereal and, though brief, they linger with you for the rest of the day. Try one of these great collections or search for “short stories” in the catalog and see what you discover! #shortstories #shortstorymonth #cplreads #bookstagram #bookishIf you can’t get enough of The Handmaid’s Tale, try one of these similar novels to compliment your viewing of season 2. #handmaidstale #margaretatwood #readersadvisory #cplreadsAnbolyn from our Sunset Library recommends Howards End by E.M. Forster. The series was good, but the book is better! #cplreads #cplstaffpicks #stickynotereviews #howardsend #emforster #onlyconnectMay the fourth be with you on this #bookfacefriday - Swing by the library for some out of this world, Star Wars reads!
