Winter 17 to Spring 18 Reading Series
This weather has us all discombobulated here at the bookstore, summer is spring and fall is summer, and it is hard to tell which end is up anymore. In the spirit of lack of pattern, this reading list is all over the map. Drawing from several genres and with no consistent theme, this winter and early spring will be sure to keep you on your toes! Book club meets the last Tuesday of each month at 7pm at our Frankfort Ave. location.
January 30 Artemis by Andy Weir
Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself--and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.
