This Just In –

ManCalledOveMore copies of July’s title, “A Man Called Ove,” have just arrived. If you don’t have a copy yet, come up to the Reference Desk to snag one. It’s a fast read, you can definitely finish it before we meet on Tuesday 7/26 at 7:30 pm. And don’t forget, “A Man Called Ove” is also available on hoopla in audiobook format.

 

WelcometoBraggsvilleWant to get a jump on August’s book? We have copies of that, too! August’s title was chosen by one of our group member’s, Andy, and is a very timely contemporary fiction. College students know everything, right? And satirical hard-hitting practical joke street theatre can change minds and fix communities, right? In “Welcome to Braggsville,” not so much. We’ll be meeting Tuesday 8/23 at 7:30 pm at Napper Tandy’s to discuss “Welcome to Braggsville” (which, incidentally, is also available in audiobook format on hoopla).

And again, if you don’t see us in the left-hand-side bar, we’re probably out on the back deck enjoying the beautiful weather, so just walk straight through past the bathrooms.

Oh! And by the way, you should all be taking part in MML’s Adult’s Summer Reading! You can enter the books you read this summer for a chance to win weekly drawings for Barnes & Noble gift cards. And, way more fun, we’re doing Reader’s BINGO! For every BINGO row you complete you get an entry into a drawing at the end of the summer for a David Bowie READ poster. So those squares about reading a sci-fi novel, book translated from another language, book chosen by someone else – you Titles on Tap readers have got those nailed! Learn more here, and enter a BINGO duel with our Tech Librarian, Alli.

A Man Called Ove

ManCalledOveGood news and bad news – our Titles on Tap book for July, “A Man Called Ove,” is a bestseller. It really is a delightful book, but its popularity means we’re having trouble getting and keeping physical copies. If you want an actual paper copy to read, run don’t walk (well, I mean be safe, don’t fall or anything) to the Reference Desk because we only have one copy left. We also have a copy of the book on CD for those of you who listen to books while driving, and we will soon have a Playaway copy.

But! We’re lucky to have instant, 24/7 access to the audiobook through hoopla. You can stream the audio on a computer or download it to the hoopla app. The audio only runs about 9 hours, and the beauty of hoopla is that you can speed up the reader. You can finish this book in a day!

So, pickup or download a copy and join us at Napper Tandy’s on Tuesday 7/26 at 7:30 pm. We may be in the left-hand-side bar, but if you don’t see us, walk all the way through past the bathrooms to the back deck – it’s lovely back there. 🙂
