The 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.

I enjoyed reading The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. It gives you a look at the condition of the African-American community. It makes you reflect over who you are as a person, and how you treat people. The ending is rather depressing, but that's what makes the impact of the book so strong. This book opens your eyes to the cultural walls that we have built in America, and how it affects us as a whole. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a greater understanding of the African-American community.

City of Thieves by David Benioff is one of my favorite books. It takes place in Russia during World War II during the siege of Leningrad. There is some violence, but it is a great read with plenty of action. I highly recommend this book.
