You can record five books on each slip. Bring in the completed slips and we will drop them in the box for the drawing on April 1. You could win a bag chair, T-Shirt, canvas book bag or a soup mug.

Adult Fiction

"Cell" by Robin Cook. With "Cell" Robin Cook demonstrates why he is the undisputed king of medical thrillers. Can a smartphone app kill you? You'll believe it can after you read this story, which blasts along faster than a truckload of quad core processors. Equal measures a substantive social commentary that we will all soon have to deal with and a terrifying blood-and-guts tale of what lies right around the technology corner, Cook has delivered a home run worthy of the the writer who has consistently thrilled millions ever since his blockbuster Coma."

"The Forever Girl" by McCall-Smith. Amanda and her husband, David, feel fortunate to be raising their son and daughter in the close-knit community of expats on Grand Cayman Island, an idyllic place for children to grow up. Their firstborn, Sally, has always listened to her heart, deciding at age four that she would rather be called Clover and then, a few years later, falling in love with her best friend, James.

But the comforting embrace of island life can become claustrophobic for adults, especially when they are faced with difficult situations. At the same time that Clover falls in love with James, Amanda realizes that she has fallen out of love with David . . . and that she is interested in someone else. While Amanda tries to navigate the new path her heart is leading her down, Clover finds, much to her dismay, that James seems to be growing away from her. And when they leave the island for boarding school—James to England and Clover to Scotland—she feels she may have lost him for good. As Clover moves on to university, seldom seeing James but always carrying him in her heart, she finds herself torn between a desire to go forward with her life and the old feelings that she just can't shed.

"The Chase" by Janet Evanovich. Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams.
