Mantor Monday

Hello, and welcome back to the first Mantor Monday post of the spring semester. It doesn't feel very springlike at the moment, since the temperature has plummeted - but that's okay. It's perfect reading weather.
If you like to keep up with current titles in both fiction and nonfiction, why not browse the Discoveries Collection case? We've got some brand new offerings. Here's a little selection of January titles:

Full Dark, No Stars
Earth (the Book): A Visitor' Guide to the Human Race
Sh*t My Dad Says
The Poacher's Son (Set right here in western Maine!)
Zombies vs. Unicorns
And there are many, many more to choose from. Or, if you still haven't had a chance to read our On Our Minds selections, there are multiple copies of both books on the lobby display case.
Oh- and speaking of display cases, we've got some interesting new stuff going on. In the lobby: Twinkies. Yep, the anti-health food: facts, lore and recipes. And in the third floor display case, we're featuring a display called "Dinner by Decade: Fashions in Food on the American Table, 1950 - 2010." We've even dug up some recipes that will make you shudder - especially if you're old enough to remember them on your own dinner table. (Jellied vegetable salads: need I say more?)
So, come in out of the cold, and pick up a good read to take home and curl up with. Hot chocolate and fuzzy slippers optional, but highly recommended.
