Hot books for the week of 2/28/11

1. Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. This long-awaited follow up to The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One has blown off the shelves! Susan is a huge fan of this book, and she’s not alone.
2. The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman. Here’s another staff favorite, thanks to Mary’s enthusiasm this book is getting the attention of our customers.
3. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. This is my (Stanley) favorite book for 2008 and I never get tired of recommending it. LOVE this book! And so does just about everyone else. This was our Number 1 book for 2009!
4. Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book recounts the store of the protest and fire at the Triangle Waist Company in New York City, which claimed the lives of 146 young immigrant workers. This year, 3/25/11, marks the 100th anniversary of the fire. FYI: The Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State is sponsoring a 40 hour fast to coincide with the anniversary.
5. Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth. A smart and sassy and moral vampire (he was raised Catholic) is at the service of the President of the United States and the Constitution. I couldn’t put this book down. Pure escapism at it’s best. Not just a formulaic piece, it’s got some substance to it. Yes, here it comes… something to sink your teeth into! (How could I resist.)
