JUST ARRIVED  This week we have new novels by Lisa Scottoline (Feared,) J. A. Jance (Field of Bones,) Craig Johnson (Depth of Winter,) Ilona Andrews (Magic Triumphs,) Faye Kellerman (Walking Shadows,) Julia Keller (Bone on Bone,) J. D. Robb (Leverage in Death,) Karin Slaughter (Pieces of Her,) Ruth Rendell (Dark Corners,) Beverly Lewis (The First Love,) and James Patterson (Juror #3.)  You can also check out The Devil and the Deep, an anthology of short horror stories about the monsters lurking in the ocean.  If you’re the creative type, check out Draw Stronger for tips to keep yourself healthy.  Although it’s focused on illustrators, its tips can be helpful for anyone who works with their hands and spends long periods of time seated at a desk.  For projects to occupy the lengthening nights, take a look at Animal Quilts, featuring paper piecing patterns for quilts starring a variety of animals, or Granny Squares Home for new takes on this basic crocheting staple.  Chefs might want to borrow The Farm Cooking School for recipes and menus highlighting the bounties of each individual season.  In the performing arts, learn about Frédéric Chopin and his music through the pianos that first played his pieces in Chopin’s Piano.  If you’re curious about the evolution of acting, try Playing to the Gods, about Sarah Bernhardt, her late-life rival Eleonora Duse, and how they each affected their craft.  Finally, look at poetry, culture, and politics through the writings of the late Adrienne Rich in Essential Essays.
