Christmas in July, New Year's in August by Laura Raphael

Every late December or early January, I peruse my reading list from the year just ending or ended and pick my favorites. Here at the library, we even share our lists. It’s always one of the reading-related highlights of my year: both considering and choosing what stayed with me the most, and discovering what my colleagues considered and chose.

It’s not the end of the year yet (not even close), but if we can have Christmas in July, why not New Year’s in August?

With that in mind, here’s my list of favorite fiction reads for 2013 – so far:

September Book Club Selection: James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

“Here is a broad fantasy with all the gruesome imagery of old-fashioned fairy tales and a good measure of their breathtaking delight.” Kirkus Reviews

In the Local History and Digital Collections Department, two or three items have been cleared from their temporary repository, and various digitization requests have been filled.
