The cool autumnal air is rolling in and I am loving it!  There are many reasons that I love this season, and this past weekend was certainly at the top of the list.  My husband and I hosted our first ever clambake.  If you’ve never been to a clambake, I’m sorry.

A fall clambake in Cleveland generally consists of close friends and family, a very large steamer pot packed with bags of clams, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, and unpredictable weather.  It’s all part of the fun.  Part of a successful clambake is only inviting your closest of relations so they know your hosting style and don’t expect adequate tables, or dry seating.

We learned a lot this year, and will be spending the next 20+ years perfecting our clambaking craft.  While we were steaming clams, we may  have also been tossing around some reading suggestions.  Here are some suggestions you could pass along to your guests at your next social gathering:

amy-snow

glory-over-everything

cutting-season

underground-airlines

vinegar-girl

 

Happy reading!

August is flying by!   Whenever I look at the calendar my eyes wander to the second week of August, but nope! We are in the fourth week already. Holy cow!  That being said, we’ve all been very busy here in the Reference Department as we help others get ready to go back to school.  Now that most of the schools are in session, we are going to start playing catch up with our reading, our Reading Room entries, and maybe even our weekly blogging.  Here are a few titles that we haven’t yet featured in our Latest Additions:

mrs. houdini

mrs st clair

murder and moonshine

kitchen house

valley of the moon

 

Happy reading!

Sunday was one of the more important holidays in my world, National Ice Cream Day. I’ve discovered through my life that even though many people love ice cream, particular preferences for  ice cream are very personal.  Growing up I was not exposed to much ice cream outside of the cardboard quarts sold in the grocery store, and any variety of mint chocolate chip, or cookies n’ cream was a delightful treat.  In the last few years I’ve had more opportunity to try some of the local and regional artisan ice creams, and my perspective has shifted.

About ten years ago I was introduced to Graeter’s Ice Cream, and since then, no other ice cream has been worth the time or calories to me.  And that is saying something, because I’m not one to moderate either of those things too well.  The Cincinnati ice cream company has slowly made its way up to the Northeast Ohio in local grocery stores so I’ve made able to get my fix on occasion.  As of a few weeks ago, Graeter’s has opened their first Cleveland area scoop shop, making this past National Ice Cream Day monumental for me.  I was able to indulge in my favorite Black Raspberry Chip ice cream on a sugar cone just a few miles from my home. It was pure bliss!

If you’re looking for a book to be as passionate about as I am about ice cream, maybe one of these titles recently added to our Reading Room is for you:

margaret the first

orchestra of exile

river road

devil's dish

leaving

 

Happy reading!
