Great New Books

Clock Dance by Anne Tyler

From her mother’s early-on disappearance to widowhood at a young age, Willa Drake has known tragedy: now she just wants to become a grandmother. When her son’s ex-girlfriend is shot, Willa rushes cross-country to tend to her and her nine-year-old daughter. There she learns how a community can bond as closely as family, how solace can be found in small, unexpected places, and how rebirth can come from pain.

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

This is the tenth in the popular Amish mystery series featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. A stately old barn burns to ash with 18-year-old Daniel Gingerich inside. It’s no accident, and Kate soon learns that Daniel wasn’t the sweet, self-effacing guy he appeared to be.

I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses by Lisa Scottoline

Novelist Scottoline and daughter Serritella team up for the eighth in a series of entertaining mother-daughter humor books. This summer read is sure to cheer readers spanning the generations but will be of particular appeal to mothers and daughters.

When We Found Home by Susan Mallery

Malcolm, Callie, and Kiera are suddenly linked when they learn that they share a father, whom none of them knew, and a grandfather eager to embrace his new found family. Mallery weaves together these stories in a compelling contemporary fairy tale that culminates in a satisfyingly happy ending.

The Fall of Wisconsin by Dan Kaufman

A deep blue state has turned red with far-reaching consequences, according to this incisive study of Wisconsin state politics. Journalist Kaufman examines the collapse of Wisconsin’s left-liberal heritage—in the 20th century the state pioneered welfare policy, labor rights, and environmental regulation, and Milwaukee had a socialist mayor for decades. After the 2010 election brought Republican governor Scott walker to power, the state became a laboratory for right-wing nostrums. The author’s vivid reportage and insights illuminate America’s changing political climate.


Whether you’ve battled the bulge for what seems like forever—or just since your last birthday—it’s true that age can have a lot to do with the number on the scale. It also becomes increasingly more challenging to shed those pounds. The two big reasons people tend to gain weight as they get older are loss of muscle mass and decreased activity according to Boston University Medical Center. Five key ways to lose weight after 50 are: Pile on the protein-30-40 % daily; Lift weights at least twice a week; Get enough shut-eye—7-8 hours nightly; Try occasional fasting—five days a month of 750 to 1000 calories can shed on average 6 pounds; Practice mindful eating—paying attention to how hungry or full you feel, planning meals, eating without television or newspaper, concentrating on how your food tastes.

Stingy Schobel Says

Best booking time for low cost airline tickets: 21 to 121 days before a flight. This is the best period for low price plus reasonable seat selection. Booking 14 to 20 days before a flight may save you a little money but seat and flight options will be limited. Booking 7 to 13 days before a flight guarantees higher costs ($160 on average) and fewer choices.

Library Laugh

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him... is he still wrong?
