New AND Good Reads
“Leaving Time” by Jodi Picoult.
For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her
mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident.
Refusing to believe she was abandoned, Jenna searches for her mother regularly
online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied
grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she
loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s
whereabouts. As Jenna’s memories dovetail with the events in her mother’s
journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish. A deeply moving, gripping,
and intelligent page-turner, “Leaving Time” is Jodi Picoult at the height of her
“The Beatles Lyric: The Unseen Story Behind Their Music” Edited by Hunter
Never before has anyone attempted to track down and publish the original
versions of the classic songs of the Beatles, many of which have never yet been
published. These documents have ended up in the hands of collectors and friends
of the Beatles, scattered across the world at museums and universities. Hunter
Davies knew and worked with the Beatles during their heyday, and wrote their
first and only authorized biography. In this collection, he has tracked down and
reproduced over 100 original handwritten manuscripts of their songs, reproduced
here - and, in almost every case, for the very first time. Almost every Beatles
song has a great story behind it, whether it is 'Yesterday', 'Eleanor Rigby' or
'Yellow Submarine'. Many books have appeared about the Beatles, but in the end
what really matters - and will always matter most - is their music. Their music
comes out of their lives, just as their lives and emotions are reflected in
their music. “The Beatles Lyrics” is the definitive story of their lives, as
uniquely told through their music.
“Gray Mountain” by John Grisham.
In classic Grisham style, the reader is brought into the world of a naive yet
resourceful young lawyer who begins to uncover the generations of secrets which
want to remain buried. “Gray Mountain” follows Samantha, a third year associate
at New York's largest law firm, who loses her job two weeks after the collapse
of Lehman Brothers. Within a week, Samantha is out of New York and has become an
unpaid intern in a legal aid clinic in small town Appalachia, where for the
first time she deals with real clients with real problems; those real problems
start uncovering a sinister world of big coal, with its impacts on the
environment, the health of its miners, but, as the only real industry in town,
with an overbearing influence on a community and its people. Her character's
intelligence and resourcefulness leads her deeper into this world, and, in the
vein of many Grisham novels, leads her into deeper and deeper peril.
Information Tip of the Week
Consumer Reports offers the following advice when using your dishwasher:
Do put large items at the sides and back of the dishwasher. Face dishes toward
the tub’s center to give them more exposure to the spray, and give each a little
space for better coverage. Put items with baked-on food in the bottom rack with
food facedown towards the spray arm. Place silverware with handles down, but put
knives handles-up. If your dishwasher has an open basket, mix spoons, forks, and
knives to keep them from nesting. Using the little individual slots for
silverware also gets them nice and clean. Use the top rack for plastic and
fragile, dishwasher-safe items. Don’t try to fit more glassware by crowding
glasses together. Rest them individually on prongs to keep them from bumping
into each other—and to keep water from pooling in them. You can also prevent
chipping of china, crystal, and stemware with the same method, and some
dishwashers have special slots for stemware. If you’re replacing an older
dishwasher, today’s models typically have more room for place settings than
older models. That means 12 or sometimes more. Before visiting an appliance
store, read the dishwasher buying guide by Consumer Reports.
