Current Staff Reads: April 2017

So what do library workers actually read? Here in Adult and Teen Services, we have a wide range of tastes and interests, so I thought it would be fun to highlight what some of us are currently reading at the moment. Who knows, this might become a regular thing on the blog! Let’s begin.

Brian:

Amazing Journey: The Life of Pete Townshend by Mark Wilkerson

Amazing Journey: The Life of Pete Townshend by Mark Wilkerson

This is Brian’s current read. As you can tell from the title, it’s about the life of Pete Townshend, the lead guitarist of The Who. Brian is enjoying this book because of its candid descriptions and snippets of insider info that he didn’t know before. (And Brian knows a lot about music, so that’s saying something!)

Jessica:

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

Jessica is reading The Art of Racing in the Rain, which is a fictional book narrated by a dog! Jessica says she’s enjoying it – she says it’s a bit sad, but that the dog is very smart and she likes that it is the dog who is telling the story.

Maureen:

The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty

The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty

Maureen just started reading this book for the Coffee and Conversion book club at Fountaindale! If you’re into 1920s history, this might be the novel for you.

Deyanira:

Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Deyanira is reading Game of Thrones! She says she’s really enjoying it because each chapter is written from a different characters’ perspective. She also likes how it seems very seeped in both history and fantasy.  We just told her not to get too attached to any of the characters…

Emily:

In the Country We Love

In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero

I’m reading In the Country We Love, which is a memoir written by Diane Guerrero, who is famous for starring in the shows “Orange is the New Black” and “Jane the Virgin.” She talks about being the daughter of undocumented immigrant parents who were deported when she was fourteen. It’s really good!

Hope you enjoyed seeing what some of our staff is reading! What’s on your reading list right now?
