Our Favorite Books of 2014

2014Nearing the end of every year we are inundated by Best of the Year lists. Of course at a library we pay the most attention to the lists of best books.  We here at Syosset R and R would like to add to the mix and tell you what our reading favorites were for 2014.  Our staff was asked to tell us what books they enjoyed most during the year and the books did not have to be published during this year.
