FICTION:

The Affair by Lee Child

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I personally could not be more excited to have this book at our library. One of my favorite authors. Check out the review from The New York Review Of Books and in The New York Times. Picked by Amazon as the #2 (of 10) book of the year. We think you’ll find that this book is proof that literature matters.
