Before I Go to Sleep

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

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

Right-Computer

By Leigh Scaggs, network administrator Such a short sweep of time; such an enormous sweep of change. When I came to work at the library very few people had computers in their homes or any real contact with computers. These days I listen to grandmothers on devices they carry in their pocket talking to a grandchild and watching a live feed of that grandchild’s birthday party being held halfway around the world. Broadcast television, which once seemed to be an … Continue reading

Duck Commander Family is suprisingly enjoyable

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
