Humor, Fantasy and More

On the New Shelf this week, you'll find the latest Thursday Next novel by Jasper Fforde, The Woman Who Died a Lot as well as a good selection of fantasy such as Todd McCaffery's Sky Dragons from the Pern series his mother made popular and the first two installments of a new series by a new author.  This promises to be quite good and definitely an author to watch for.  Look for The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.  Others on the shelf are Hilary Mantel's second prize winner, Bring Up the Bodies, Michael McGarrity's Hard Country, Debbie Macomber's The Inn At Rose Harbor, John Sandford's Mad River and Jo Nesbo's Phantom.  The final (really!) Maximum Ride adventure by James Patterson can be found in Young Adult (if you're quick).  Look for Nevermore.
Two new non-fiction books are Nate Silver's The Signal and the Noise and Willie Nelson's biography, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.
Don't forget we have great writers here in town, as well.  Join the Friends of the Worthington Library and The Worthington Historical Society at the Blackburn Inn on Tuesday night as they host this season's Writers Read.  Begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday, January 8.
