Okay folks time once again to vote on which book we would like to read for the club. I am excited and hope this season's is as fun as last.
I chose Susan's suggestion and one other.
Real Murders by Charlaine Harris
Now repackaged, the first Aurora Teagarden mystery by "New York Times" bestselling author Harris finds this Southern librarian and member of the Real Murders Club hunting the person behind a terrifying killing spree. Though a small town at heart, Lawrenceton, Georgia, has its dark side-and crime buffs. One of whom is librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden, a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It's a harmless pastime-until the night she finds a member killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss. And as other brutal "copycat" killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects-or potential victims.Charlaine Harris, who has been writing mysteries for over twenty years, is a native of Mississippi. Born and raised in the Delta, she began training for her career as soon as she could hold a pencil. Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and (later) teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, and graduated to books a few years later.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
An extraordinary debut novel about an accomplished woman who slowly loses her thoughts and memories to a harrowing disease -- only to discover that each day brings a new way of living and loving.
Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty years old, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's disease changes her life.
As the inevitable descent into dementia strips away her sense of self, fiercely independent Alice struggles to live in the moment. While she once placed her worth and identity in her celebrated and respected academic life, now she must reevaluate her relationship with her husband, a respected scientist; her expectations of her children; and her ideas about herself and her place in the world.At once beautiful and terrifying,...
Aero, doesn't your library share within a certain area? For instance, my library is part of the larger system encompassing two counties from which to pull a book. I also have the option of going state-wide to find one, although I believe there was a minimal charge of a couple of dollars for one. I do hope you are able to find one. What about you, Mary? Can you go outside of Toronto? Also there are used books to be found on line. I really didn't think there'd be that many people waiting to read this series. Probably because of the popularity of her more recent series.
