What Staff are Looking Forward To Reading These Holidays

I belong to two book groups so I do a fair bit of reading that is not of my choice and just not enough time to get round to all the ones I do want to read. So many library reserves come back unread. For one group that meets late in the month, we don’t have a set book for December and the other group that meets early in the month doesn’t set a book for January so I usually have those months ‘free’ to read just what I want. Lovely!

For all Library staff the Christmas/New Year break is a time to catch up and these books are what Library staff say they are going to be reading while we are closed.

Might provide a few ideas for you too  . . .

  • The Ghost at the Wedding by Shirley Walker
  • Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy
  • Status Anxiety and The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work by Alain de Boton (or do I want to be reminded of work when on holiday??)
  • The Sisters Brothers by Patrick de Witt
  • No Great Mischief by Alistair MacLeod
  • The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
  • Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy
  • Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger
  • Numerous Marie Claire magazines
  • The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams – it appears to be a family saga with lots of twists and turns, looking forward to a wet day after Christmas and curling up and reading it.
  • Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
  • Geographer’s Library by Jon Fasman
  • Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs
  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
  • Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan
  • Back-issues of  Runway Magazine, an Australian art magazine
