The Painted Drum
by Louise Erdrich

Submitted by Lynn M.
This is the third of Erdrich’s books I’ve read, and the one I enjoyed the most. The changes of narrator threw me at first, but she brings it back around in the end, and ultimately I think each voice is best for the particular part of the tale it tells.

The Gown: A Novel of the Royal Wedding
by Jennifer Robson

Submitted by Terri S.
I truly enjoyed this novel! Quick chapters, an engaging, and richly plotted story line with interesting and likable characters. I loved the section at the end where the author explains her research process in preparing for and writing the novel. It was fun to google images and articles related to the fashion house of Norman Hartnell and his extraordinary haute couture designs, not to mention that incredible gown worn by Princess Elizabeth. A fun and informative read!

The Joy of Less
by Francine Jay

Submitted by Kelly K.
Starting the new year always seems like the right time to rid ourselves of clutter and start fresh. This book is a wonderful guide to the process, based on minimalism and transformation.  You are not what you own, less stuff = less stress, embrace space, live simply – these are some of the chapters in this brief, to-the-point guidebook of organization, reduction and renewal. (Non-Fiction)
