TIME TO START THINKING OF GARDENING-there are still seeds available

The Fontana Garden Club invites you to grow with them. They have set up a Seed Library, which is located in the magazine area of the library. Along with the seeds, we have a variety of FREE books to help those “green thumbs”. The Seed library is a self-serve, self-sustaining exchange program. Take home seeds-plant them-watch them grow! At the end of the season, return seeds to the library for next year’s stock. By saving seeds as a community, we help create local seed stocks that are acclimated to our climate.

Readers’ Most Anticipated Books of Summer

big books of spring 2020

Welcome back, once again, to the perennial tradition of summer reading. Thanks to display-technology advances in e-book readers, you can bring entire libraries of books out into the bright sun. Instead of being indecisive on the couch, you can be indecisive in the sand. Progress! There’s no stopping it.

This year’s batch of summer books is especially rich and diverse, and occasionally quite weird. Look for new titles from celebrated authors including Silvia Moreno-GarciaOttessa Moshfegh, and Taylor Jenkins Reid; buzzy debuts from Katie GutierrezJ.M. Miro, and Gina Chen; and some intriguing wild card options concerning Colombian fortune-tellers, genetically designed posthumans, and 19th-century divorcée destination vacations.

As always, the books below are sorted by genre and largely determined by you, the loyal Goodreads regular. Titles are selected by tracking early reviews and crunching the numbers on how many readers are putting these books on their Want to Read shelves.

Be sure to add anything that catches your eye to your own Want to Read shelf, and let us know what you’re reading and recommending in the comments. For the entire article, click on link: https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/2284-readers-most-anticipated-books-of-summer
