Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage) by Christopher McDougall
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage)

Shannon Mauldin, October 2, 2012

This book is absolutely inspirational! It brings back all the memories of running as a child - the freedom, the speed, the wind in your hair. Reading this book made me want to drop everything and go running right then. The writing style is very conversational, and manages to pack in a lot of factual information without feeling dry or boring. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Everyone should read this book!

Fables, Volume 1 by Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham and Lan Medina
Fables, Volume 1

Shannon Mauldin, September 28, 2012

Take the cast of every fairy tale you can think of, throw in Peter Pan, Wizard of Oz, Aesop's Fables, Mother Goose, as well as allusions to Narnia and Winnie the Pooh, and you have the ensemble of this amazing new graphic novel series. The Fables now live in the middle of New York City but must keep their identity secret from the outside world while fighting off an enemy determined to take over all of the Kingdoms, including ours. Witty, exciting, and action packed!

The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

Shannon Mauldin, September 27, 2012

Most people know that many African-Americans moved North after the Civil War. This is the first book, however, to widen the scope and look at this trend as an important historical and cultural phenomenon occurring over a 100 year period, and one that still has ramifications in today's world. Told through the voices and stories of 3 people who went North, reading this books feels like listening to family stories by the fireplace.

The Tale of Hill Top Farm: The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Susan Wittig Albert
The Tale of Hill Top Farm: The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter

Shannon Mauldin, August 8, 2012

This charming mystery evokes the feeling of the Victorian English countryside with this first book featuring Beatrix Potter as a newcomer to the small English village with a tendency to get involved in village mysteries. One of the best of the many mystery series featuring a famous author as the detective, this series stands out for its focus on a variety of different crimes/ mysteries, instead of littering the countryside with a unceasing succession of corpses. The animal perspective on the human action is funny and endearing, with frequent nods to Beatrix Potter's books. In spite of light and charming tone this book hits, it is not afraid to take on serious topics as well, including issues of class and gender. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
