WHAT CAN I READ NEXT?
Many people get book recommendations from family and friends. Some join a local book club. There was Oprah's Book Club too, but not so much anymore. Who can fill Oprah's shoes? Enter the largest and oldest library association in the world, the American Library Association! Slightly less well-known than Winfrey, the ALA nevertheless is a great resource for anyone searching for that next perfect page-turner. Recently the ALA announced their 2012 Notable Books winners. The notable titles include:
The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht
The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje
The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips
Swamplandia by Karen Russell
The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood by James Gleick
Unbroken: A World War 2 Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
