WEEKLY QUOTE  “The Sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the Universe to do.” – Galileo Galilei

JUST ARRIVED  Explore the worlds of animals in Being a Beast and What a Fish Knows, and investigate the fragile art inspired by fragile creatures in A Sea of Glass.  Come back up on land for Engineering Eden, a book about the history of and some of the legal troubles surrounding America’s national parks.  Take a trip through the creation of softball in Fastpitch, a trip down memory lane (and more specifically your favorite movies from the 1980s) in Life Moves Pretty Fast, or a trip further back in time and across the pond to learn about The Audacious Crimes of Colonel Blood.  Our fiction shelves feature stories of mystery and isolation this week, including Alexis Smith’s Marrow Island, Midge Raymond’s My Last Continent, and Willnot by James Sallis.  If you’d rather read a story of people coming together, try Elin Hilderbrand’s latest, Here’s to Us.
