This is the 5th batch of treasures added this summer! Some of these are reorders due to popular demand. (My only other copy sold.) Julia Spencer-Fleming’s series with the Vicar and the Police Chief is the best example. Some are great new titles that add arguments, if not always luster, to local lore, e.g. Founding Mothers, Dinosaurs in the Attic, and how about Bernd Heinrich’s The Snoring Bird as an unexpected biographical joy? See you soon, but hurry. Season ends too soon.

The webcam still sits atop the same pile of four books, but the poplar branch is drooping lower and the high-bush blueberry bush branch is growing higher and, of course, bluer, so the view becomes more dappled and murky as summer winds down and daylight gives in.
