Thank You for Being Late
Thank You for Being Late by Thomas L. Friedman (Other Nonfiction)
I'd like to recommend this book to anyone that holds on to the belief that climate change, global trade, and AI are not compromising their health and liberty. Friedman gives a great foundation for understanding the how the pace of life and birth patterns are impacting us now. He does have a positive view believing that this can be organized from the community level up. I wish I could retain all this knowledge to explain it to my friends. Read the Book! -- Added by 1234mom on 02/24/2017

Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
Octavia Butler offers a masterful and sobering look into a dystopian future sure to make to feel deeply and think harder. Set in California during the years 2025-2027, a long way from the publication date of 1993, but frighteningly close for today's readers, the story develops from a young woman's diary entries as America collapses into chaos. -- Added by crazycat66 on 02/24/2017

The Silver Bear
The Silver Bear by Derek Haas (Mystery/Suspense)
Columbus was trained as an assassin after being orphaned, placed in terrible foster homes, and serving a term in juvenile detention. Recruited as a teenager, he is expert in many methods of killing and is at the top of his profession--a Silver Bear. He now faces a more challenging assignment, to kill a U.S. Senator on the campaign trail for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Unusual complications arise, and Columbus discovers surprising things about himself and those around him as he follows the senator's trail. This is the 1st in a series of 3 books. It is a page-turner and a quick read. -- Added by ERobinson on 02/24/2017

The Easy Fake Book (Songbook)
The Easy Fake Book (Songbook) by Hal Leonard Corp. (Other Nonfiction)
This is a music book that gives the basic musical notation. I was hoping it would go a bit further than it did but it does give chords for accompanyment. The songs are all standards from ages ago. I'd recommend it if you are looking for a specific song but the genres are all over the place. -- Added by 1234mom on 02/24/2017

Night
Night by Elie Wiesel (History/Biography)
I found this book to be powerful, yet difficult to absorb. It's unbelievable how much suffering these people went through in the concentration camps. I must admit that I felt the writing wasn't as refined as "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom, but I did feel absorbed in the story---especially knowing that it was true. -- Added by rwoolston on 02/23/2017
