Book of the week from your friendly OCCC Library staff: This week it's "The Life of Elizabeth I" by Alison Weir. Perhaps the most influential sovereign England has ever known, Queen Elizabeth I remained an extremely private person throughout her reign, keeping her own counsel and sharing secrets with no one--not even her closest, most trusted advisers. Against a lavish backdrop of pageantry and passion, intrigue and war, Weir dispels the myths surrounding Elizabeth I and examines the contradictions of her character. This book and other library recommendations can be checked out at the OCCC Library. #libraries #oregonlibraries #oregoncoastcclibrary #bookoftheweek #history #elizabethi

In the super spacious book space that is our central library, where do you reckon this book is hidden. Zoom in to see the books on the shelf behind for a clue. About the Book Sister by @rosamundlupton "Lupton enters the highly charged ring where the best psychological detective writers spar... Like Kate Atkinson, Patricia Highsmith and Ruth Rendell… Both tear-jerking and spine-tingling, Sister provides an adrenaline rush that could cause a chill on the sunniest afternoon." –The New York Times Book Review When her mom calls to tell her that Tess, her younger sister, is missing, Bee returns home to London on the first flight. She expects to find Tess and give her the usual lecture, the bossy big sister scolding her flighty baby sister for taking off without letting anyone know her plans. Tess has always been a free spirit, an artist who takes risks, while conservative Bee couldn’t be more different. Bee is used to watching out for her wayward sibling and is fiercely protective of Tess (and has always been a little stern about her antics). But then Tess is found dead, apparently by her own hand. Bee is certain that Tess didn’t commit suicide. Their family and the police accept the sad reality, but Bee feels sure that Tess has been murdered. Single-minded in her search for a killer, Bee moves into Tess's apartment and throws herself headlong into her sister's life--and all its secrets. Though her family and the police see a grieving sister in denial, unwilling to accept the facts, Bee uncovers the affair Tess was having with a married man and the pregnancy that resulted, and her difficultly with a stalker who may have crossed the line when Tess refused his advances. Tess was also participating in an experimental medical trial that might have gone very wrong. As a determined Bee gives her statement to the lead investigator, her story reveals a predator who got away with murder--and an obsession that may cost Bee her own life. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #hamiltoncitylibraries #libraries #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #thriller #chilling #bestseller #novel #booklover #bookish #igreads #igbooks #bookworm

What do you know, books like a good selfie too. If you are at the @hamiltoncitylibraries (central library) then come seek this book out and post a selfie with it. Can't wait! Thanks to the lovely people at @bookdiscussionschemenz for this book. If you would like to know more about them, then please do visit https://www.bds.org.nz About the Book The Martian by Andy Weir Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him? #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #libraries #hamiltoncitylibraries #selfiewithabook #readersofinstagram #amreading #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #booknerdigans #lovemylibrary #igreads #igbooks #readersforlife #bookish #fantasy #themartian #andyweir #bestseller #novel

It's easy to get lost in the demands of the everyday, such as work, bills or daily chores. Always remember to take some time out for yourself, be inspired, be motivated, or just relax and enjoy a good audiobook... Bolinda has plenty to choose from!

An historically interesting, if horribly sectarian and condescending Protestant view of Catholic Ireland at the turn of the last century. Have a look at the last photo and please explain the image of the women sitting to the right and looking at the camera. It looks like she's wearing a hideous mask and yet it doesn't. I keep trying to figure out if it's some kind of image distortion.

#maga @realdonaldtrump so on serious note Donnie, are you gonna start killing people like #putin or have you already? I still say you are the 1989 jogger killer in #centralpark but you just like to grab them by the pussy, walk in on models dressing, pay ppl off if they had sex with you. What learn about you today, but everything. You are already against the constitution & think yr above it. But still where is all the winning? You are lost like Nixon was. What war are you gonna press? What are hiding us from at the moment? What is it that we don't know is going on? Kids & adults in cages. After those with Green Cards are sent packing, who is next? All you had to do was focus on infrastructure, turning all #foreign #militarybases into #punk #goth #hiphop #improv #bars and #libraries focus on #stem in schools & work to make schools open 24/7 centered around the individual students needs & safe. You could work on making government volunteer and EVERYONE involved- but hey with urge to be dictator you scream against the media, sadly turn the alphabet gangs into heroes. But sadly EVERYONE who blindly follows you #donaldtrump will believe anything you say. You only got a mere 25.3% of the votes & you say you ran a great campaign. Yr the epitome of what is wrong & failing but you call yrself an outsider? Smh LMAO
