This week's reading stack is another short one. I finished "Rabbit Cake" by Annie Hartnett from last week. It is definitely a 5 star read -- check it out.
"South Pole Station" is about a group of "Polies" who live and work in a place with an average temperature of -54 deg. F. and no sunshine for six months of the year. People apply and go through rigorous physical and psychological testing to be selected to participate in this program. This the new debut novel release from Ashley Shelby is "about the courage it takes to come together, even as everything around you falls apart."
"Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore" is a debut novel by Matthew Sullivan that will solve the mystery surrounding the suicide of a favorite bookstore customer. As one of the clerks in the bookstore untangles the mystery, she unlocks a secret in her past.
"Idyll Banter" by Chris Bohjalian is a collection of columns submitted to a local weekly newspaper column in Vermont over a period of twelve years. They serve as a diary of Bohjalian's life and reflections on his personal observations. Anyone who has read any of his previous work knows they are in for a treat by reading this little treasure.
