#ShelfLife - June 9, 2017

This week in the #ShelfLife we learned that our patrons love chocolate ice cream and Rebecca (we do, too!).

Now that we've put that combination in your head, we bet you might just dig out your old copy of that Daphne du Maurier novel and sit down to read it with a scoop of ice cream.

When you finish, don't forget to record it in your summer reading log! Patrons who register and reach their summer reading goal will be entered in a grand prize raffle drawing for the prizes we announced for kids, teens, and adults on Instagram earlier this week.

Join us on Instagram next week for more #ShelfLife recommendations for #ReadingWithoutWalls and great books for kids to read with Dad on Father's Day.

THE PAPER MENAGERIE AND OTHER STORIES by Ken Liu, a collection of thought-provoking short stories that range from realistic to fantastical, was recommended to us by Nicholas Y. at the Sharon Forks Library. Nicholas says his favorite stories were "The Paper Menagerie", "An Advanced Readers' Picture Book of Comparative Cognition", and "The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary". If you're looking for something beyond beach reads this season, give THE PAPER MENAGERIE a read and let us know what you think. If you liked the book, you might be interested to know that Ken Liu is an author and translator of speculative fiction, as well as a lawyer and programmer. He's a winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy awards and is writing a silkpunk epic fantasy series called THE DANDELION DYNASTY. Place a hold on the first two books, THE GRACE OF KINGS and THE WALL OF STORMS, in our online catalog. #ShelfLife #staffpick #ReadingWithoutWalls #shortstory #amreading #fiction #scifi #fantasy #thepapermenagerie #kenliu #bookstagram #librariesofinstagram
