The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Other Fiction)
What is there to say about this classic! I reread this book after several years. The idealism, lavishness, passion, and description of the American Dream make this novel the quintessential American classic that we can relate to even 85 years later. -- Added by lmimmel on 03/29/2015

Impolite Conversations
Impolite Conversations by Cora Daniels (Other Nonfiction)
This book had very honest discussions about race, politics, sex, money and religion. It had interesting viewpoints regarding how sexually active women are usually viewed negatively by society and how black people's identities are affected by having light or dark skin color, political party affiliation, etc. -- Added by Sunnygirl317 on 03/29/2015

Murder Boogies with Elvis
Murder Boogies with Elvis by Anne George (Mystery/Suspense)
This is the 8th and last in a series about two 60-something sisters in Birmingham, AL. The author died not long after this book was published. The series is very amusing and full of Southern-ims. In this episode, the older sister, Mary Alice is getting ready to marry her 4th husband. When she, her fiance (a sheriff), several of his family members and the younger sister, Patricia Anne (a retired schoolteacher) and her husband are attending a variety show at an old, landmark theater, a singer/dancer in an Elvis-impersonation revue dies. Naturally the sisters get involved in solving what happened. Lots of family backstory and silliness, but an enjoyable quick read. -- Added by ElizabethR on 03/29/2015
