In December I asked our staff if they wouldn’t mind answering some questions about the books they read in 2013. The answers have been posted in this blog during the last few weeks. Today’s post is the last in the series, in which we look ahead to our reading for 2014.
If you have enjoyed the series and have any other questions you would like me to pose to the staff about their reading, please let us know in the comments section below.
Is there a book you have been putting off reading and are hoping to read in 2014?
Not putting off exactly but reading at an extremely slow pace: Middlemarch by George Eliot. I like to read it when I know I will have a long uninterrupted block of time which does not happen too often. I hope to finish it in 2014! – Sonia, Readers’ Services Librarian
One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson – Neela, Head of Acquisitions
Winter of the World by Ken Follett – Audrey, Media Clerk
Perhaps about a 100 books – but who’s counting! – Brenda, Reference Librarian
The Stand by Stephen King – Stacey, Readers’ Services Librarian
11/22/63 by Stephen King: I need to finish it. – Amy, Children’s Librarian
Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce – set between two of her earlier books, it fills in a gap in the timeline and explains the emotional change several of the characters went through after being caught up in a war in a foreign country. – Erica, Reference Librarian
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – Evelyn, Readers’ Services Librarian
Is there a book(s) coming out in 2014 that you are looking forward to reading?
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor – seriously, this one can’t come out soon enough! – Erica, Reference Librarian
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness – Evelyn, Readers’ Services Librarian
Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett, third book in the 2oth Century Trilogy – Betty P., Reference Librarian
