Favorite author

A quiet moment
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Although our students complain that they have little time to read outside of their classroom assignments, there is an author that is mentioned time and time again by the students as a favorite when they have the time to read for pleasure. Jodi Picoult is able to capture their imagination with her timely plots, often taken right from the headlines of the day. We own 11 of her books and they are all popular. Harvesting the Heart, Mercy, My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, The Pact, Plain Truth, Salem Falls, Second Glance, Songs of the Humpback Whale, The Tenth Circle and Vanishing Acts are in our collection, but not necessarily on the shelf.

It's interesting to hear authors that libraries frequently hear requests for. I've never read any Jodi's books. I'll have to add one to my list.
