New books

All right!  It’s a new year.  Let’s get down to brass tacks and tell you about a few of the new books on our shelves.  Here’s a sampling from our “new” non-fiction shelf:

If you have food allergies, you’ll want to know about this one:  The Divvies Bakery Cookbook, by Lori Sandler.  It’s full of beautiful pictures of mouth-watering confections — all without nuts, eggs, or dairy.  Bring leftovers to the library staff; we’re always happy to help.

The Emperor of All Maladies, by Siddhartha Mukherjee.   This book is on everybody’s “top 10 books of 2010” lists.  It’s a biography of cancer (which turns out to be thousands of years old) which many reviewers say reads like a novel.

And if you’ve had enough winter and want to start dreaming of spring, how about Lasagna Gardening, by Patricia Lanza?   She teaches a layered method of soil preparation, with lots of basic information about many popular crops.  “No Digging, No Tilling, No Weeding, No Kidding!”

Happy reading…
