The Books are in the Bag

Good news for book clubs. The book bags have just multiplied, courtesy of the Thunder Bay Library. Any club may reserve to borrow a bag of books, distribute to members and return after the next meeting.
And the new books available are:

In the Land of Long Fingernails by Charles Wilkins
Lottery by Patricia Wood
Digging to America by Anne Tyler
The Time in Between by David Bergen
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
Factory Voice by Jeanette Lynes
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davicson
The Shack by William P. Young
A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda N. Adichie
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Many thanks to Helen Cimone of the library. I have a few favourites on this list, particularly The Time in Between by David Bergen. A Short History of Tractors in the Ukraine by Marina Lewycka and In the Land of Long Fingernails by Charles Wilkins. I found Digging to America by Anne Tyler a bit over the top. Love to hear opinions about the others. E mail me at jbaril@tbaytel.net.
