I purchased this book used at the Redwood City Public Library the day before leaving California for home. Little did I know that the book title would presage a journey prolonged by flight delays, re-routings, and concatenated bus trips. The good news is that Grogan kept me distracted during my own “longest trip home.”

We will be discussing The Descendants, Kaui Hart Hemmings at tmorrow's Tinley Tomes book discussion. All are welcome to attend. If you have read the book, great! Even if you have just seen the movie please join us. There is no pressure to participate, and stay only as long as you want. This is just for fun, we are not literary scholars here.
Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde is a mystery set in the future with lots of wordplay and British wit. Centuries earlier, color perception was affected so that the elite are those who see the most hues. Edward Russet, an upper class wannabe, has to do community service at another village, and becomes embroiled there in murder and politics, perhaps even a revolution. --Paul, Adult Reference
Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka by Jon Scieszka
Roger Ebert tells his life story, from high school newspaperman to respected film critic and writer. He doesn’t shy away from the more unpleasant aspects of his story; the last chapter is especially powerful in its honesty. This is a great read if you’re looking for an inspirational tale with some inside Hollywood lore thrown in. --Susan, Administration
