    THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV
    by ELIZABETH BERG If you want to read a thoroughly engaging story, this is it. It centers on a recently–widowed elderly man who takes the bus each day to have lunch at the grave of his beloved late wife. This is not a sad visit for him, but a time to remember all the good times he had with his wife. One afternoon an 18-year old girl who visits the cemetery to get away from annoying kids at school happens upon Arthur and the two of them develop a surprising friendship, a friendship that turns friends into family. Before long a third person enters the trio and their unusual bonding creates a blessing for each one.

    THROUGH YOUR EYES: MY CHILD'S GIFT TO ME
    by AINSLEY EARHARDT Illustrations by Ji-Hyuk Kim This tender picture book with gorgeous illustrations aptly tells the story that it is a child who really shows us our beautiful world. Everything is new and exciting to a child…whether it is a bird taking flight, a butterfly flitting among flowers, rain dancing in puddles, or lying on the grass and counting the clouds in the sky. Whatever the child sees is a wonderment and we are invited to enjoy it through her eyes.

    ENDURANCE: A YEAR IN SPACE; A LIFETIME OF DISCOVERY
    by SCOTT KELLY Follow Astronaut Scott Kelly in this memoir as he details his life leading up to and including the time he became an NASA astronaut and veteran of four spaceflights. He commanded the International Space Station on three expeditions and was a member of the yearlong mission on it. Part of his work there was to determine how long-term exposure in space affects the human body. That is vital as science and research look forward to traveling to Mars in the future. This inspiring story is complete with photos.

    THE ROOSTER BAR: A NOVEL
    by JOHN GRISHAM John Grisham takes us into the lives of three law students who are in their last year attending a run-of-the mill for-profit law school, only to determine they will likely never be able to pay back the nearly quarter of a million dollar debt they have accumulated so far for their schooling. They have learned just enough from their time thus far in law school that they figure out a plan to "beat the system."
