Looking for a new book?

by Alyssa Bradac - 0 Comment(s)

We've all experienced it - the disappointing, empty void after finishing a really, really great book. How do we move on? How do we recover? Where will our next book fix come from? And most importantly, how will we find the time?

If you've ever found yourself asking these questions, worry no more! There is a new display at the Saddletowne Library featuring Quick & Easy reading recommendations from our diverse and helpful staff. Featuring everything from quirky graphic novels to short classics, check out our picks for you! Best of all, our recommendations truly do focus on the words "Quick" and "Easy", so you won't feel the need to over-commit (we all know how exhausting that can be!).

Remember that according to the CBC, only six minutes of reading a day can improve your stress levels and over-all health!

If you're looking to blaze your own book trail, here are some other recommendations:
