TGIF! We're celebrating the start of a long weekend with these #FridayReads:
Talia's in a sailing mood thanks to
THE PLOVER by Brian Doyle
When Declan O Donnell flees his troubled life on land by setting out on the Pacific Ocean in his boat, the Plover, he discovers something much more interesting than the solitude he sought. "Doyle (editor, Portland Magazine) has written a novel in the adventurous style of Jack London and Robert Louis Stevenson but with a gentle mocking of their valorization of the individual as absolute. Readers will enjoy this bracing and euphoric ode to the vastness of the ocean and the unexpectedness of life." — Library Journal, starred review
Anne's gearing up to meet one of her favorite writers at ALA Midwinter with
KEEP QUIET by Lisa Scottoline
Jake Whitmore is enjoying a rare bonding moment with his sixteen-year-old son, Ryan, when they get in a terrible car accident that threatens to derail Ryan’s future. Jake makes a split-second decision that saves his son from formal punishment, but plunges them both into a world of guilt, lies, and secrecy. When a malevolent outsider comes forward with the power to expose them, Jake must do anything he can to prevent the further unraveling of his family.

In the meantime, we'll be loading up our e-readers and getting ready to hit the road for Philly. We're off for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday, but will be posting content when we can leading up to the opening of ALA Midwinter. We hope to see you there (and by there, we mean Booth #622)!
