before I go to sleep

by Amanda Clark, BCPL adult programming supervisor Before I Go to Sleep is the first novel by British author S.J. Watson. I recently read it as part of the Novel-Tea Book Club (which meets at the Main Branch of Boyd County Public Library on the 4th Monday of each month at 1 p.m.) The book is billed as a psychological thriller. Since that’s not what I typically enjoy reading, I put it off until the last possible minute. In fact, … Continue reading

Lover at last

The long awaited 11th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Lover at Last, by J. R. Ward is now available.

duck commander family book

By Jamie Bayne, BCPL information services supervisor Like many good red-blooded rednecks, I am a huge fan of the show Duck Dynasty produced by A&E.  Being such a prodigious fan, I was leery to read the book Duck Commander Family in case some illusion I harbored was shattered.  Because, let’s face it, television – especially reality television – is all about entertainment.  The television show focuses on the men of Duck Commander – Phil, Willie, Jase, Si and (to a … Continue reading

Vampires get real

real vampires have curves

By Renee Schmutz-Sowards, BCPL circulation specialist Let me start by stating that I’m not a fan of the current, slightly over done, genre of vampire-themed literature.   For those not familiar, these books are generally written for a young adult audience, high school to early 20’s, and often revolve around an introspective, angst-ridden teen protagonist, usually female, who in addition to the everyday teenage concerns  of “Am I pretty enough?”, “Why doesn’t anyone understand me?”, “Am I cool enough?”, “ … Continue reading

The Backyard Homestead

the backyard homestead

By Barb Biggs, BCPL branch manager About a year ago, my husband and I made a decision. It was something that my younger self (the one that dreamed of brownstones in Brooklyn) would never have imagined. We moved to a farm. Granted, it is a small farm, but we moved to a farm where there are cows in the backyard and wild turkeys in the woods and a family of foxes that lounge in the old barn. We made this … Continue reading
