Otis Library Asks:
What are you reading?

Book reviews and best sellers lists are all well and good, but sometimes the best books are those you hear about from word of mouth. With that in mind, the Otis Library asks “What are you reading?” Add their recommendations to your own reading list! Remember to ask at the Information Desk if you need help locating one of these books.

Our reader this month is:
Paige Allen                                                                                                                                                                                

The book I am currently reading is "Leaving Time" by Jodi Picoult.   I find myself being transported into her novels and feel like I am experiencing things along with her characters. There is never a dull moment when reading any of her books. The hardest part about turning through the pages of her books is that it becomes overwhelmingly difficult to put it down. She is one of the few authors who can make me laugh, cry, and gasp in bewilderment all at once.

In high school she was the only author I would ever do reports on or read during study halls. My all-time favorite book written by her is "My Sister’s Keeper." Even though I have never actually been through the things the characters are going through, I feel as though I have. Her characters are somehow relatable and attainable so much so that you can imagine them being your neighbors, friends, or family.

Reading is one of my favorite hobbies, taking a close second place to pottery. Luckily I have a lot of down time while making pottery so I always have a few books on hand in my studio. My pottery will be on display at Otis Library for the month of August. Be sure to stop by and check it out and take a peek at the Jodi Picoult novels the library has on hand!
