Daily Digital & Print Suggested Reads: Thursday, August 31, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended titles in print or media and digital formats.

Our digital suggestion for today is the e-book:

Quiet Until the Thaw by Alexandra Fuller:

The debut novel from the bestselling author of Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight and Leaving Before the Rains Come.

Lakota Oglala Sioux Nation, South Dakota. Two Native American cousins, Rick Overlooking Horse and You Choose Watson, though bound by blood and by land, find themselves at odds as they grapple with the implications of their shared heritage. When escalating anger toward the injustices, historical and current, inflicted upon the Lakota people by the federal government leads to tribal divisions and infighting, the cousins go in separate directions: Rick chooses the path of peace; You Choose, violence.

Years pass, and as You Choose serves time in prison, Rick finds himself raising twin baby boys orphaned at birth in his meadow. As the twins mature from infants to young men, Rick immerses the boys in their ancestry, telling wonderful and terrible tales of how the whole world came to be and affirming their place in the universe as the result of all who have come before and will come behind. But when You Choose returns to the reservation after three decades behind bars, his anger manifests, forever disrupting the lives of Rick and the boys.

A complex tale that spans generations and geography, Quiet Until the Thaw conjures the implications of an oppressed history, how we are bound not just to immediate family but to all who have come before and will come after us, and, most of all, to the notion that everything was always, and is always, connected.

And our print book suggestion for the day is:


Y is for Yesterday by Sue Grafton:

“Of #1 New York Times-bestselling author Sue Grafton, NPR’s Maureen Corrigan said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.” With only one letter left, Grafton’s many devoted readers will share that sentiment. The darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone, Y is for Yesterday begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate–and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns state’s evidence and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace. Now, it’s 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents–until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That’s when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he’s not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find”

Daily Digital & Print Suggested Reads: Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended titles in print or media and digital formats.

Our digital suggestion for today is the e-book:

The Case of the Missing Morris Dancer by Cathy Ace:

The Women of the WISE Enquiries Agency are back in a witty and intriguing new mystery.

The Anwen Morris Dancers are to play a pivotal role in the imminent nuptials of Henry, eighteenth Duke of Chellingworth. But it looks as though the wedding plans might go awry unless Mavis, Annie, Carol and Christine can help Althea, the Dowager Duchess, by finding a missing Morris man and a set of ancient and valuable artefacts in time for her son’s wedding.

Anwen-by-Wye might look like an idyllic Welsh village where family values reign and traditions still mean something in a modern world, but what will the WISE women find when they peer behind the respectable net curtains?

And our print book suggested read for the day is:

Moving The Palace by Charif Majdalani:

At the dawn of the 20th century, a young Lebanese explorer leaves the Levant for the wilds of Africa, encountering an eccentric English colonel in Sudan and enlisting in his service. In this lush chronicle of far-flung adventure, the military recruit crosses paths with a compatriot who has dismantled a sumptuous palace in Tripoli and is transporting it across the continent on a camel caravan. The protagonist soon takes charge of this hoard of architectural fragments, ferrying the dismantled landmark through Sudan, Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula, attempting to return to his native Beirut with this moveable real estate. Along the way, he encounters skeptic sheikhs, suspicious tribal leaders, bountiful feasts, pilgrims bound for Mecca and T.E. Lawrence in a tent. This is a captivating modern-day Odyssey in the tradition of Bruce Chatwin and Paul Theroux.

Charif Majdalani, born in Lebanon in 1960, is often likened to a Lebanese Proust. He teaches French literature at the Université Saint-Joseph in Beirut. Moving the Palace is the winner of the prestigious François Mauriac Prize from the Académie Française as well as the Prix Tropiques.

Daily Digital & Print Suggested Reads: Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our recommended titles for today.

Our digital suggestion for today is the e-book:

Young Jane Young: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin:

From the author of the international bestseller The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry comes another novel that will have everyone talking.

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern in Florida, makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss—and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the beloved congressman doesn’t take the fall. But Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins: slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics.

She sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. This time, she tries to be smarter about her life and strives to raise her daughter, Ruby, to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, Aviva decides to run for public office herself, that long-ago mistake trails her via the Internet and catches up—an inescapable scarlet A. In the digital age, the past is never, ever, truly past. And it’s only a matter of time until Ruby finds out who her mother was and is forced to reconcile that person with the one she knows.

Young Jane Young is a smart, funny, and moving novel about what it means to be a woman of any age, and captures not just the mood of our recent highly charged political season, but also the double standards alive and well in every aspect of life for women.

And our print book suggested read for the day is:

Tropic of Kansas by Chris R. Brown:

Futurist as provocateur! The world is sheer batshit genius . . . a truly hallucinatorily envisioned environment.”—William Gibson, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author

“Timely, dark, and ultimately hopeful: it might not ‘make America great again,’ but then again, it just might.”—Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling and award winning author of Homeland

Acclaimed short story writer and editor of the World Fantasy Award-nominee Three Messages and a Warning eerily envisions an American society unraveling and our borders closed off—from the other side—in this haunting and provocative novel that combines Max Barry’s Jennifer Government, Philip K. Dick’s classic Man in the High Castle, and China Mieville’s The City & the City

The United States of America is no more. Broken into warring territories, its center has become a wasteland DMZ known as “the Tropic of Kansas.” Though this gaping geographic hole has no clear boundaries, everyone knows it’s out there—that once-bountiful part of the heartland, broken by greed and exploitation, where neglect now breeds unrest. Two travelers appear in this arid American wilderness: Sig, the fugitive orphan of political dissidents, and his foster sister Tania, a government investigator whose search for Sig leads her into her own past—and towards an unexpected future.

Sig promised those he loves that he would make it to the revolutionary redoubt of occupied New Orleans. But first he must survive the wild edgelands of a barren mid-America policed by citizen militias and autonomous drones, where one wrong move can mean capture . . . or death. One step behind, undercover in the underground, is Tania. Her infiltration of clandestine networks made of old technology and new politics soon transforms her into the hunted one, and gives her a shot at being the agent of real change—if she is willing to give up the explosive government secrets she has sworn to protect.

As brother and sister traverse these vast and dangerous badlands, their paths will eventually intersect on the front lines of a revolution whose fuse they are about to light.

In anticipation of the new Outlander seasons staring in September, our print book suggested read for the day is:

Seven Stones to Stand or Fall: A Collection of Outlander Fiction by Diana Gabaldon:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A magnificent collection of Outlander short fiction—including two never-before-published novellas—featuring Jamie Fraser, Lord John Grey, Master Raymond, and many more, from Diana Gabaldon

“The Custom of the Army” begins with Lord John Grey being shocked by an electric eel and ends at the Battle of Quebec. Then comes “The Space Between,” where it is revealed that the Comte St. Germain is not dead, Master Raymond appears, and a widowed young wine dealer escorts a would-be novice to a convent in Paris. In “A Plague of Zombies,” Lord John unexpectedly becomes military governor of Jamaica when the original governor is gnawed by what probably wasn’t a giant rat. “A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows” is the moving story of Roger MacKenzie’s parents during World War II. In “Virgins,” Jamie Fraser, aged nineteen, and Ian Murray, aged twenty, become mercenaries in France, no matter that neither has yet bedded a lass or killed a man. But they’re trying. . . . “A Fugitive Green” is the story of Lord John’s elder brother, Hal, and a seventeen-year-old rare book dealer with a sideline in theft, forgery, and blackmail. And finally, in “Besieged,” Lord John learns that his mother is in Havana—and that the British Navy is on their way to lay siege to the city.

Filling in mesmerizing chapters in the lives of characters readers have followed over the course of thousands of pages, Gabaldon’s genius is on full display throughout this must-have collection.

Non-Fiction DVD Recommendations 8 18 17

Hi everyone, here are three Non-Fiction DVD recommendations for the week.

Secrets of the Dead: After Stonehenge:

Description: Secrets of the Dead: After Stonehenge follows a team of archaeologists, scientists, historians and specialists, as they shed new light on the ancient history of the western world. Perfectly preserved in mud, the prehistoric British Bronze Age Village – built at least one thousand years after Stonehenge – has been called the “British Pompeii.”

“The Pompeii analogy: it’s as if we’ve got a pristine settlement,” says Mark Knight, site director, Cambridge Archaeological Unit. “A pristine image of exactly what was going on within a settlement 3,000 years ago.”

Because the site is so delicate, the experts have been working in secret inside the quarry. But now they are rushing to complete their work and map the site before the land is returned for its owner’s use.

Have their findings forever changed what we know about life in Bronze Age Britain? What revelations about the villager’s lives can be gleaned from the cache of finds, unprecedented in number and quality, emerging from the marshy Fens?

“This is the crown jewels in terms of what it will tell us about past humanities and the way that people lived in this landscape 3,000 years ago,” says Knight after taking stock of the extraordinary findings. Has this English settlement rewritten Western history? — PBS

Good friend and best selling author ND Wilson crafted the script and brought new eyes to what it means to be a father and mother and the high calling of faithful parenting.

Suggested Listens August 25, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our six musical recommendations for the week; five streaming suggestions and one recommended album on CD.

Freegal Streaming Suggestions*

The Genius Of The Electric Guitar by Charlie Christian:

This collection features the seminal work of early electric guitarist Charlie Christian. Christian died tragically young of tuberculous in 1942 at age 25; but not before recording some great music with Benny Goodman’s band. In an age when popular music was dominated by horns, Christian was one of the first guitarists to bring the new electrified guitar to the front and center of the stage and recording studio.

This is an outstanding collection featuring all of Christian’s best recordings including Flying Home, Rose Room, Memories of You, AC-DC CurrentGone with the Wind, Lester’s Dream & Wholly Cats. Guest musicians that appear on this collection are a variable who’s who of Jazz/Swing greats of the time including Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa, Jack Teagarden, Fletcher Henderson and Benny Carter. Check it out!

Here’s a link to stream the Charlie Christian collection:

https://goo.gl/gQ7MS4

The Essential Jimmie Rodgers by Jimmie Rodgers:

This Columbia Records collection features songs recorded by the yodeling country music pioneer from 1927 to 1933. Rodgers was an extremely talented individual who was one of the first country singers to sing of the hard working life laborers experienced in the early twentieth century. Rodgers was a hard working laborer himself. He spent a number of years working as a break man on the railroads; so when he sang about gamblers, ramblers, bounders and rounders, as his AllMusic biography states – he knew of what he sang! And I had to look up definitions for the early twentieth century words “bounders” and “rounders;” as I had never heard them before! The former term describes a dishonorable man and the later a drunken man. Rodgers, like Charlie Christian, died young of tuberculosis; but he left behind wonderful recordings that not only influenced country musicians for decades after his passing, but that also, like Woody Guthrie’s music, captured what life was like for poor working class Americans in the early twentieth century.

This collection includes the following songs Blue Yodel (T for Texas), Train Whistle Blues, In The Jailhouse Now, My Carolina Sunshine Girl, Frankie and Johnny & Peach Pickin’ Time in Georgia.

Here’s a link to stream the Jimmie Rodgers collection:

 Pearl (The Legacy Edition) by Janis Joplin:

This 1971 release shows the gritty classic rock singer Joplin at her finest. It is regarded by many critics as her second masterpiece, after her 1968 debut Cheap Thrills. Songs include: Move Over, Cry Baby, A Woman Left Lonely, Half Moon, Buried Alive in the Blues, Me and Bobby McGee & Mercedes Benz.

Here’s a link to stream Pearl:

https://goo.gl/aFEgs4

The Search for Everything by John Mayer:

Popular singer-songwriter & excellent guitarist John Mayer released his first album Room for Squares in 2001. On that first album, Mayer concentrated on producing thoughtful acoustic folk-rock music. Since then, he has emerged as a talented guitarist and branched out to record music that includes blues and jazz elements. The Search for Everything is his new album and features the songs: Still Feel Like Your Man, Emoji of a Wave, Love on the Weekend, In the Blood, Changing, Moving On and Getting Over and Rosie.

Here’s a link to stream The Search for Everything:

And our suggested print book for the day is:

Ten Dead Comedians: A Murder Mystery by Fred Van Lente:

Fred Van Lente’s brilliant debut is both an homage to the Golden Age of Mystery and a thoroughly contemporary show-business satire.

As the story opens, nine comedians of various acclaim are summoned to the island retreat of legendary Hollywood funnyman Dustin Walker. The group includes a former late-night TV host, a washed-up improv instructor, a ridiculously wealthy “blue collar” comic, and a past-her-prime Vegas icon. All nine arrive via boat to find that every building on the island is completely deserted. Marooned without cell phone service or wifi signals, they soon find themselves being murdered one by one. But who is doing the killing, and why?

A darkly clever take on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and other classics of the genre, Ten Dead Comedians is a marvel of literary ventriloquism, with hilarious comic monologues in the voice of every suspect. It’s also an ingeniously plotted puzzler with a twist you’ll never see coming!
