COVID-19 Reads!

Hello Dover Friends! 

As you can imagine, our staff has been reading a lot while we’ve been closed! Here are a few of the books that we’ve been enjoying! 

Ray has just finished reading Finding Chika by Mitch Albom.  Now he’s started The Bastard Brigade: The True Story of the Renegade Scientists and Spies who Sabotaged the Nazi Atomic Bomb by Sam Keane. He’s also keeping up with the news by reading The Wall Street Journal everyday.

Debbi has been re-reading the Bible and The Fisherman’s Lady, a historical fiction novel by George MacDonald.  George MacDonald was a Scottish author and mentor to C. S. Lewis, another of her favorite authors.

Reading has made time go a little faster for Carol T.  She’s read Kiss Carlo and  All the Stars in Heaven by Adriana Trigiani. All the Stars in Heaven was fiction but about Loretta Young and Clarke Gable! She’s also read The Murder House by James Patterson and Heads You Win by Jeffrey Archer while she’s been home. 

Did you know Pat owns a horse? While the library is closed she’s been reading Groundwork Training for Your Horse by Lesley Bayley.  She’s also reading the Bible, Into the Planet: My Life As a Cave Diver by Jill Heinerth, and Jo’s Boys by Louisa May Alcott. Jo’s Boys is the last book in the “Little Women” trilogy.  

Carol E has been enjoying audiobooks while at home.  Currently she’s listening to My Name is Mary Stutter by Robin Oliveira. Mary is a midwife who wants to become a doctor.  She faces many struggles with prejudice against woman in medicine. Her next book will be Cilka’s Journey by Heather Morris. Cilka is a sixteen year old girl who is taken into a concentration camp. 

Jenny is currently in the middle of the second book in the Outlander series, Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon.  She’s enjoyed seeing how the book compares to the show! She’s also read Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of “The Children’s Ship” by Deborah Heiligman and Again, but Better by Christine Riccio.  Additionally she’s enjoyed several picture books.  Some of which you can see on our Facebook page!
