Library Lines: Tuesday, 20 November, 201

All your favourite authors have been writing up a storm, making sure that readers will have some good titles for the Christmas break. The library staff have purchased over 100 new titles last week, and they are being processed ready to the borrowed.

Remember, if you know of a good book, or even an older title that you think will be of interest to the reading public, don’t hesitate to recommend it to the library staff. Most new fiction, current non-fiction, and some older titles are purchased for the collection. The staff will fill out a purchase request form, so the correct author, title and any other details you might have will be useful. You’ll also be notified when the book is ready to be borrowed so you can be the first person to read it!

New titles added this week include Matthew Reilly’s The three secret cities, the latest novel featuring the adventures of Captain Jack West Jr. by one of Australia’s best known authors. Also continuing the adventures of the Courtney’s is Wilbur Smith’s latest novel, Courtney’s War, is a sequel to War cry and set during World War II.

Rachel Johns, another Australian author, has written ‘a fresh and poignant novel of family, journeys, past decisions … and dresses …’ in Lost without you ‘four women, one dress, and the secret that binds them all …’

Readers of the thriller genre will love James Patterson and James O. Born’s latest Michael Bennett thriller Ambush ‘The trap is set. Nowhere left to run’. And the new Jack Reacher thriller by Lee Child Past tense is also a cliff hanger ‘Another nail-biting, adrenaline-fuelled adventure for Reacher. The present can be tense, but the past can be worse.’

See you soon at the library!
