Caught My Eye As They Went By #1

I'm excited to introduce a new feature on the blog called Caught My Eye As They Went By, wherein I finally get to tell you about the interesting, weird or adorable books I come across working at a public library. I encounter all kinds of notable materials between regular check-ins, morning delivery and processing new books, and even if I don't necessarily intend to read them myself I want to share these cool/bizarre/"aww"-inducing finds with you. It just might be that you find your next read or a perfect gift!


"Novel Destinations: Literary Landmarks from Jane Austen's Bath to Ernest Hemingway's Key West" by Shannon McKenna Schmidt and Joni Rendon

'The Skeleton Cupboard: The Making of a Clinical Psychologist" by Tanya Byron

"The Lady and Her Monsters: A Tale of Dissections, Real-Life Dr. Frankensteins, and the Creation of Mary Shelley's Masterpiece" by Roseanne Montillo

"Plucked: A History of Hair Removal" by Rebecca M. Herzig


"Stick and Stone" by Beth Ferry
I came across this adorable book while processing new materials the other day. It's about a blossoming friendship between our lovable characters, Stick and Stone. Written in simple, rhyming phrases, it's sure to be a favorite! I forced a few people at work to read it and they "aww"ed just as much as I did!

"Work, Dogs, Work: A Highway Tail" by James Horvath
A super-cute rhyming picture book that will please any little one who loves diggers, dozers and the like!

  1. Love the kids books you added. I miss reading them. Although once in awhile I will stroll through the kids section at the library to see some of the fun new books out there.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
