Summer Reading!

The library has a wonderful new batch of books for you this summer. If the hot weather has driven you inside, then what better activity is there than reading? Check out some of our hot titles below.

This group has a lot of great religion books, including:
Signs, Symbols and Omens: An Illustrated Guide to Magical and Spiritual Symbolism by Raymond Buckland
How Different Religions View Death and Afterlife by Christopher Jay Johnson
Beyond: On Life After Death by Fred M. Frohock
Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths by Karen Armstrong
Jesus Wars: How Four Patriarchs, Three Queens, and Two Emperors Decided What Christians Would Believe for the Next 1,500 Years by Philip Jenkins

Or how about a scientific take on a religious subject? Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach

If that doesn't suit you, try some of our more popular reads that have been added recently, like:
Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (the series)
Hell's Corner by David Baldacci
The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht
Charlie St. Cloud: A Novel by Ben Sherwood

And speaking of Mary Roach, you might also want to take a look at Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void.

I think most people can say they've been on a diet. Find out why in The Hundred Year Diet: America's Voracious Appetite for Losing Weight by Susan Yager.

If sports are your thing, try:
The Sports Book: The Games, the Rules, the Tactics, the Techniques by Bob Bridle
Mountaineering: Training and Preparation by Carlton Cooke

As always, these are just of few of our great new books. We have more available on the new books list or via a quick search in the catalog. Enjoy, and have a great summer!
