Short Takes 1/15/2018

The Library of Michigan has now announced the Michigan Notable Books for 2018. This article appeared in yesterday's Detroit Free Press. This year’s 20 books were chosen from a list of nearly 300 published in 2017.

I was in a bookstore the other day and although I don't need another book to read, I picked up Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

There's a new title coming from Kate Atkinson in September 2018. "Transcriptiona bravura novel of extraordinary power and substancewill be published in Doubleday hardcover in September 2018. It tells the story of Juliet Armstrong, who is recruited as a young woman by an obscure wartime department of the secret service. In the aftermath of war she joins the BBC, where her life begins to unravel, and she finally has to come to terms with the consequences of idealism."
