Reader Reviews at NPL

Stalwart observers of our library’s spaces may have noticed a new bulletin board dedicated to collecting reader reviews.

Brief book review cards are available at the circulation desk to be filled out and put on display alongside pictures of the book covers. Looking for a book recommendation from a friend or neighbor? The Reader Reviews bulletin board can help!

Here are some recent reader reviews on fiction, non-fiction, and biography selections:

Washington Black / Esi Edugyan. “Impossible to put down!”

Little faith: a novel / Nickolas Butler. “Beautifully written, sparse and lush at the same time”

Say nothing: a true story of murder and memory in Northern Ireland / Patrick Radden Keefe. “Compelling history and storytelling”

Tribe: on homecoming and belonging  (also available as an audiobook) / Sebastian Junger. “Interesting, thought-provoking, and accessible”

The lost man / Jane Harper. “Surprise ending! Love the way the author gave a sense of the atmosphere!”

Billions and billions: thoughts on life and death at the brink of the millennium / Carl Sagan. “Well-written autobiography”
