Still time to crack open a few 'summer reads' -- and 'listens,' too

Take a few moments to peruse the "recreational reads" at Emma Waters Summar Library and you'll find that several new books and books on CD have found their way onto the shelves.

Patrons who don't feel they can spare the time to read for pleasure should consider that the recreational reads area doesn't provide works of fiction only but other books that can broaden their knowledge on a variety of topics.

The shelves are filled with books related to pop psychology, creativity, faith, trends in Christianity, and daily devotionals, along with popular fiction.

Got a long drive ahead of you? Don't forget about the most recently added books on CD, which can be found on the lower right shelves.

Consider stopping by to take home a book from the following sampling of what's available. After all, the first day of class is still one month out.
  • Thrillers and mysteries: Camilla Lackberg's "The Stonecutter," Creston Mapes' "Fear Has a Name," Frank Peretti's "Illusion," Joseph Karon's "Istanbul Passage," Stephen King's "11/22/63," and Rosamund Lupton's "Sister"
  • Christian fiction: Liz Curtis Higgs' "Here Burns My Candle," Tosca Lee's "Iscariot: A Novel of Judas," and BJ Hoff's "Heart of the Lonely Exile" and "Song of the Silent Harp," books 1 and 2 in that author's Emerald Ballad series
  • Christian living: Actor Stephen Baldwin's "The Unusual Suspect: My Calling to the New Hardcore Movement of Faith," Christian journalist Brett McCracken's "Hipster Christianity: When Church and Cool Collide," and Joshua Choonmin Kang's "Scripture by Heart: Devotional Practices for Memorizing God's Word"
The recreational reading area is situated right across from the circulation desk. Don't hesitate to ask any library employee about what's new.
