The Book Buzz title we couldn't remember at Monday's discussion was...

...The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton.  An image search for that title and author will reinforce the consensus that the second cover--dark, with oncoming truck--was far more effective than a dreamy white distance shot of two unidentifiable folks.

I want to express the library's thanks to everyone who attended Book Buzz 2016.  We value your participation, and we'll definitely alert the group when we have dates for future events.

I can forward a digital copy of the Book Buzz handout to anyone who would like one; just email me at  Included on the four-page handout, along with book covers and blurbs, is information about Penguin Random House's First Look Book Club and their Ask a Librarian feature.

Oh, and you can find Library Reads, the monthly list of ten librarian-recommended new and forthcoming titles, at
