With temperatures plummeting into the 30s lately, we’ve been taking shelter and seeking all the warmth and coziness we can get. While Harbor’s Edge is always bustling with an endless amount of activities and fun things to do, I’ve noticed that the library has taken precedence for a lot of residents lately. It makes sense – I can’t imagine a more comforting ally in this weather than a great book to get lost in. Whether you love mystery, romance, fiction, autobiographies, or just the daily newspaper, you’re sure to find infinite options of every category in the Harbor’s Edge library to cozy up to.

There’s a table right outside of the library that showcases a few books each month.
Here are some of the ones residents are loving right now:

A Bond Undone: Legends of the Condor Heroes Vol. 2 by Jin Yong
This story has been translated from Chinese to English for the first time, and is described as the Chinese “Lord of the Rings.”

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
In this raw and honest depiction of the author’s battle with her daughter’s severe illness and the sudden death of her husband, she takes the reader through her journey on the ups and downs of life, love and loss.

House Rules by Jodi Picoult
This fictional murder mystery follows a teen with Asperger’s syndrome who has been accused of homicide. Did he do it, or are his unique characteristics causing police to think he’s guilty when he’s actually innocent?

First Ladies by Margaret Truman
With her unique perspective as the daughter of a First Lady, Harry Truman’s daughter reveals the truth behind many of the First Ladies in American history. Her eloquent portrayal of these women is both sincere and affectionate.

These are just a select few among the sea of options in the library. Grab a blanket and a cup hot chocolate, then settle in with whichever book intrigues you most. Happy reading!
