3/9: New at the library this week (part 2)

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on March 9, 2012

Continuing with this week’s listing, the second of three parts, here are some of the new titles for teens and adults.

Books

Last To Fold / David L. Duffy
Turbo is a man with a past—his childhood was spent in the Soviet Gulag, while half of his adult life was spent in service to the KGB. His painful memories led to the demolition of his marriage, the separation from his only son, and his effective exile from Russia.
Turbo now lives in New York City, where he runs a one-man business finding things for people. However, his past comes crashing into the present when he finds out that his new client is married to his ex-wife; his surrogate father, the man who saved him from the Gulag and recruited him into the KGB, has been shot; and he finds himself once again on the wrong side of the surrogate father’s natural son, the head of the Russian mob in Brooklyn.
As Turbo tries to navigate his way through a labyrinthine maze of deceit, he discovers all of these people have secrets that they are willing to go to any lengths to protect.

Yoga: The Iyengar Way / Silva Mehta; Mira Mehta

The alzheimer’s prevention program : keep your brain healthy for the rest of your life / Gary W. Small
The only “cure” for Alzheimer’s is prevention, and The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program shows the reader how to take control. The program begins with an assessment test, checking everything from recall to physical balance. Then, with a baseline established, it introduces the 7-Day jumpstart program-just seven days to begin to improve everything: memory training 101, including the author’s easy-to-use “Look, Snap, Connect” memory technique. Daily mental workouts to sharpen your brain: wordplay, letter scrambles, 3-D drawings, tricky equations, logic challenges, and number sequences. Healthy brain nutrition, filled with antioxidants- berries, avocados, raw vegetables; omega-3 rich, anti-inflammatory food choices, including fish, whole grains, legumes; and the memory-boosting spices most often found in Indian curries.

11/25: New at the library this week

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on November 25, 2009

Movies:

The forbidden kingdom

(all movies are on dvd unless otherwise noted)

Books:

Bears in the night / Stan Berenstain; Jan Berenstain
Seven bears sneak out of bed, through the window, and across the dark countryside to investigate the source of a noise. (Age Range: 3 to 6)

The monster in the box / Ruth Rendell
Outside the house where Wexford investigated his first case – a woman found strangled in her bedroom – he noticed a short, muscular man wearing a scarf and walking a dog. He gave Wexford an unnerving stare. Without any solid evidence, Wexford began to suspect that this man – Eric Targo – was the killer. Over the years there are more unsolved, apparently motiveless murders in the town of Kingsmarkham and Wexford continues to quietly suspect that the increasingly prosperous Targo – van driver, property developer, kennel owner and animal lover – is behind them.

Now, half a lifetime later, Wexford spots Targo back in Kingsmarkham after a long absence. Wexford tells his long time partner, Mike Burden, about his suspicions, but Burden dismisses them as fantasy. Meanwhile, Burden’s wife, Jenny, has suspicions of her own. She believes that the Rahmans, a highly respectable immigrant family from Pakistan, may be forcing their daughter, Tamima, into an arranged marriage – or worse. (Chief Inspector Wexford Series #22; read an exerpt)
