Looking for a new book to read?  Check out these great staff favorites and reading suggestions, which were featured in our Two Year Anniversary window display last month!  We are fortunate to have a staff with varied and ecclectic taste in literature.  If a book on this list sparks your interest, you can either click on the cover and order yourself a copy or you can drop in to BookBar to pick it up or order it in person.
