Review: Book Club Selection.  I was surprised by how much I liked this book.  I had read Practical Magic and didn't care for it too much, as I had seen and loved the movie.  I'm going to give Practical Magic another shot.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
