Great New Reads

Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks

Spending time at her family’s North Carolina beach cottage after her father is diagnosed with ALS, Hope Anderson mulls over big life decisions. Zimbabwe-born safari guide Tru Walls is also in town, tracking down a man who claims to be his father. Will Hope and Tru meet and face off electrically?

 Desperate Measures by Stuart Woods

A serial killer is targeting pretty, petite blond women on Manhattan’s East side. Despite briefly becoming a murder suspect himself, Barrington banters with his Police Commissioner pal, and is never lacking in female companionship. In Wood’s reliably smooth style, his latest, set as usual in the milieu of the rich and beautiful, even serial murders come to lack menace.

Brief Answers to the Big Questions by Stephen Hawking

Hawking was recognized as one of the greatest minds of our time and a figure of inspiration after defying his ALS diagnosis at age twenty-one. At the time of his death, he was working on a final project: a book compiling his answers to the “big” questions that he was so often posed-questions that ranged beyond has academic field. Within these pages, he provides his personal views on our biggest challenges as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

My Love Story by Tina Turner

Bedridden after experiencing chest pains at her 2013 wedding, Turner had time to reflect on her roller-coaster personal and professional life. Here are her thoughts and sense of contentment today.

Capitalism in America by Alan Greenspan and Adrian Wooldridge

This illuminating and in-depth history describes the unique conditions that propelled the United States to evolve from humble beginnings into a dynamic economic powerhouse.  This book explains financial events and the culture of innovation and offers remarkable insight into the current business climate. The authors attempt to answer the question of whether the U.S. will keep its world economic supremacy.


Unwanted phone calls and text messages continue to surge, no matter what efforts lawmakers and regulators take to curb them. In the first four months of this year, call-blocking service YouMail reports, more than 12 billion robocalls were made to American homes. That’s an increase from last year. Live calls from telemarketers have also continued to increase. Why? Sadly they work, generating income of almost $10 billion a year. You can try not picking up. But the calls that reach your voicemail greeting could flag that yours is a working number-and ripe for future calls. One way to defend against these calls is answer with silence. When you say nothing the call usually disconnects within seconds, with no robo-message callbacks from that phony number. If it is an unsolicited “live” caller, wait for that person to speak to brake the silence. If you don’t recognize the voice, hang up. Next week, we will provide additional defenses that will drop automated and live spam calls by more than 90 percent. Stay tuned.

Library Laugh

Instead of "the John," I call my toilet "the Jim." That way it sounds better when I say I go to the Jim first thing every morning.
