More summer reading for adults

During the summer, we often look for books that are quick reads--not necessarily books with lightweight themes, but not books to settle in front of the fireplace with for a month either. The Fiction-L listserv (a virtual community for readers' advisory librarians) recently compiled a list of "One Day Reads." Some of the titles from that list included in our libraries are below.

About Alice by Calvin Trillin (B Trillin)
The entire Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (F Eva)
Any title by Suzanne Brockman (F Bro)
Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie (LP F Cru)
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Sijie Dai (F Dai)
Blankets by Craig Thompson (741.5973 T)
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon (F Had)
High Noon by Nora Roberts (F Rob)
Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions by Richard Bach (F Bac)
Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer (F Pfe)
The Hamish Macbeth series and Agatha Raisin series by M.C. Beaton (F Bea)
Moving Target by Elizabeth Lowell (F Low)
Poison Study by Maria Snyder (F Sny)
The Big Love by Sarah Dunn (F Dun)
The Final Solution by Michael Chabon (F Cha)
The Old Man and the Sea By Ernest Hemingway (F Hem)
The Pearl by John Steinbeck (F Ste)

There are many other "quick reads" on the library shelves. Come by and browse for your summer reading today!
