An instant New York Times, Washington Post, and USA TODAY bestseller—based on the true story of the heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris during World War II—The Paris Library is a moving and unforgettable “ode to the importance of libraries, books, and the human connections we find within both” (Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author).
The Paris Library is a fresh and compelling World War II story that reminded this reader of Kristin Hannah’s breakout, The Nightingale. Toggling between France in 1939 and Montana in the 1980s, this novel is a love letter to the power of books. While it looks and smells like historical fiction, this book has even broader appeal. –Sarah Gelman, Amazon Book Review

Marco is welcomed kindly by her people-and by Keegan, leader of the Fey. Keegan has trained Breen as a warrior, and his yearning for her has grown along with his admiration of her strength and skills. But one member of Breen’s bloodline is not there to embrace her. Her grandfather, the outcast god Odran, plots to destroy Talamh-and now all must unite to defeat his dark forces. There will be losses and sorrows, betrayal and bloodshed. But through it, Breen Siobhan Kelly will take the next step on the journey to becoming all that she was born to be”–Provided by publisher.

Reminders of Him: A Novel by Colleen Hoover, 4.7 out of 5 Stars, 335 pages,
Call #: PS3608.O623 R46 2022
Every aspect of Reminders of Him feels heightened because it’s not just a romance novel and it’s not just an angst-filled forgiveness and redemption story. It’s not a heartrending epistolary novel written to a lost love. And it’s not even a what’s-best-for-the-child kitchen sink drama, though that’s how the first three story arcs intersect. It’s an honest-to-God, wet eyelashes, lump-in-throat (twice!), mix of all four. You will laugh, you will cry, you will have a new appreciation for orange F-150 trucks. And, as Kenna struggles, fails, and struggles harder to win back the reputation and the daughter she lost tragically, you will hurt for her and cheer for her. And if the owner of the orange truck is involved somehow, well, I’m not crying, you’re crying. —Vannessa Cronin, Amazon Editor

The 360 Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization by John C. Maxwell, 4.6 out of 5 stars, 2006, 313 pages,
On Order – Arriving October 7 – October 13 In this latest treatise, leadership mega-guru Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership taps a rich vein of corporate angst: the plight of the middle manager, saddled with responsibilities but lacking real power, torn by conflicting tasks and time-management dilemmas, seething with thwarted ambition. As Macbeth shows, it’s a predicament fraught with tragic potential, but the staid, platitudinous treatment given it by Maxwell and ghostwriter Charlie Wetzel drains away the drama. They generally counsel acceptance of limitations. Maxwell tells middle managers to work diligently in subordinate positions, support the CEO’s vision, find the good in incompetent or malevolent leaders, infiltrate their bosses’ emotional lives (“Listen to your leader’s heartbeat…. What makes them laugh?… Cry?…. Sing?”) and “stand up for your leader whenever you can.” They can thus exert an unsung but crucial “influence” over higherups, while themselves practicing a higher, sublimated form of leadership by selflessly nurturing the potential of their own colleagues and underlings. Unfortunately, Maxwell’s practical advice boils down to vague truisms (“when you find a problem, provide a solution”) or clichés (“If your boss is a golfer, you may want to take up the game”). His bland injunctions to resignation, patience and self-effacement are unobjectionable, but also uninspiring. (Jan. 10) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Solitude : a return to the self by Anthony Storr, 4.4 out of 5 Stars, 1988, 216 pages,
Call #: BF637.S64 S65 2005, Storr’s celebration of creative solitude is a counterbalance to the chorus of self-help books extollng interpersonal relationships. This British psychotherapist links the capacity to be alone with self-discovery and becoming aware of one’s deepest needs and feelings. Taking Goya, Kafka, Trollope, Kant and others as examples, he shows that solitude, far from being a flight from interpersonal contact, is an inveterate need, at least in some people. He analyzes extroverts who become depressives by losing themselves in the outer world and argues that fantasy is not inherently escapist, as Freud contended. The Jungian process of “individuation,” he demonstrates, sheds light on the mature artistic forays of Beethoven, Brahms and Henry James. People need a sense of participating in a larger community than either family or friends can provide, and Storr’s message is that the solitary’s search for wholeness is a valid avenue to relatedness. — Publisher’s Weekly
Stalin: Paradoxes of Power, 1878-1928 by Stephen Kotkin, On Order Arriving October 7 – October 14, 4.6 out of 5 stars, 2015, 976 pages,
A magnificent new biography that revolutionizes our understanding of Stalin and his world
The product of a decade of intrepid research, Stalin is a landmark achievement. Stephen Kotkin offers a biography that, at long last, is equal to this shrewd, sociopathic, charismatic dictator in all his dimensions. We see a man inclined to despotism who could be utterly charming; a pragmatic ideologue; a leader who obsessed over slights yet was a precocious geostrategic thinker—unique among Bolsheviks—and yet who made egregious strategic blunders. Through it all, we see Stalin’s unflinching persistence, his sheer force of will—perhaps the ultimate key to understanding his indelible mark on history. Drawing on Kotkin’s exhaustive study of Soviet archival materials as well as vast scholarly literature, Stalin recasts the way we think about the Soviet Union, revolution, dictatorship, the twentieth century, and indeed the art of history itself.
