Flying off the shelves

If you want to read any of these books, you will have to get in line. We just can't keep them on the shelf!

Janet Evanovich's thirteenth Stephanie Plum novel has been eagerly awaited by her fans. Since it arrived in June, Lean Mean Thirteen hasn't spent much time in the library. If you haven't been introduced to Stephanie and her fun band of associates, you can begin with One for the Money and will no doubt continue with Two for the Dough, Three to Get Deadly......you get the idea.

Sandhills Boy is Elmer Kelton's personal account of growing up in Depression-era west Texas, recalling oilfield days and a stint in the Army in WWII Europe. Sandhills Boy promises to be an interesting read for Kelton fans.

Texas Showdown is actually two of Kelton's short novels written in the 1960s, Pecos Crossing and Shotgun, but managing to create new interest today. With fast-paced action and earthy characters, they are classic Kelton. He is the author of fifty novels and has earned countless honors including a record seven Spur Awards from Western Writers of America, Inc., an organization that has voted Kelton the greatest Western Writer of all time. Elmer Kelton is a native Texan living in San Angelo.
