New to our shelves

Everyone is feeling the pinch in their wallets nowadays, and the HHS LMC is not immune to these financial difficulties. Though the current budget freeze means that we will not be able to purchase more titles for our collection, it does not mean that we will not continue to add resources to our shelves. As always, we are the fortunate benefactors of many people’s generosity. Of course, our good friends at the Haverhill Public Library always contribute many books after their sales, but another source of donations that I often forget to mention is our faculty and staff. Because they are too numerous to mention individually, I would like to send out a collective, “THANK YOU” to everyone who has ever donated any book, cd or dvd to our collection. Below is a just a brief list of some of the titles I found interesting (while cataloging them), along with links to the Barnes and Nobles pages about them:

 

  • Joe Gould’s Secret by Joseph Mitchell (1999)
  • House of Leaves  by Mark Z. Danielewski (2000)
  • A Place Called School: Prospects for the Future by John I. Goodlad (2004)
  • Jarhead : A Marine’s Chronicle of the Gulf War and Other Battles by Anthony Swofford (2005)
  • Twilight  by Stephenie Meyes (2005)
  • Bob Miller’s SAT Math for the Clueless  by Bob Miller (2005)
  • Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam  by John A. Nagl and Peter J. Schoomaker (2005)
  • Conduct Unbecoming: Gays and Lesbians in the U.S. Military  by Randy Shilts (2005)
  • Grayson by Lynn Cox (2006)
  • Prayers for the Assassin by Robert Ferrigno (2006)
  •  

    Hope you find something to take home for the weekend. See you all tomorrow, and thank you for stopping by.
