Hey MCPL Weston Branch...What Are You Reading???
August 05, 2010
Many times, customers come in to the MCPL Weston Branch and ask us what we are reading. As we all don’t work at the same time, I thought I would conduct a survey to see just what it is my fellow Mid-Continenters are reading. To make it more fun, I have added little personal tidbits about the staff.
Janet – Likes long walks on the beach and Cheetos. She just finished reading Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel by Jeanette Walls. She enjoyed how the book was based on Walls’ own grandmother. After hearing Janet talk about the book and reading some reviews, I have put this book on hold.
Sandy – Likes short walks in the park and a delicious dip called Texas Caviar. Sandy is a big Janet Evanovich fan and has read all of the number books. She, like yours truly, was disappointed in Finger Lickin’ Fifteen, but has high hopes for Sizzling Sixteen. Will Stephanie finally choose between Ranger and Morelli? We can only hope.
Mary Kay – Does not like walking and only eats foods she can’t pronounce. She just finished the Sign of Seven Trilogy by Nora Roberts. She liked it. She is not sure if she will ever like walking, though.
Lauren – Enjoys kicking people with her tae kwon do moves and eating lots of pizza. I agree that pizza is a good thing. I guess I also agree that kicking people can also be enjoyable. Lauren is currently in the middle of Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. She thinks it is “pretty good”. Before this, she was reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. She found the writing was so-so, but the plot was interesting.
Lynn – Possesses a scholar’s mind and plays a wicked game of pinochle. She is reading State of the Onion by Julie Hyzy. This is the first in the White House Chef Mystery Series. She is surprised that the book is actually pretty suspenseful. She made it to House of Night #6, but found that too much was happening and it was too weird. She might go back to it at a later date.
Jesse – Does not read, only watches movies, preferably the scary ones.
Brandi - Will be the first line of defense during the zombie invasion and has not eaten Kraft Macaroni & Cheese since she was 13, I think. To help me prepare for the zombie hordes, I read a lot of zombie literature. The latest was Play Dead by Ryan Brown. Zombies and football… a good combination. Not just any football, though, but Texas high school football. Not a bad book. I did not pick up any survival tips, but still enjoyed myself.
Heidi – Can walk and chew gum, sometimes at the same time. Currently, she is reading the Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins. She has just finished #2 in the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series by Anne Perry. She is enjoying both series.
Diana – Loves sewing clothes for her rooster statue and keeping up with friends on Facebook. Right now she is reading The Potluck Club by Linda Shepherd and Eva Everson. The story has captivated her so much that she does not realize the book is overdue. Diana, it is overdue. She plans on eating her way through the series as each book is filled with scrumptious recipes.
Cindy – Spends time knitting hats for Diana’s rooster statue and practicing origami. As Cindy is an educator, she does not have a lot of time for adult books, but gives two thumbs up to these books for kids: Duck on a Bike by David Shannon, Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin, and Cinderella Penguin, or The Glass Flipper by Janet Perlman.
Darlene – Spins plates and makes homemade gazpacho. She is reading up on Germany and watching John Wayne movies.
