Laydown Lowdown

Many of you have seen Rory, the adorable book club cat on our main page.  However, Rory doesn't do much other than create mischief and help us choose our book club selections by gnawing on the books.  My fat cat Boris however, always curls up by my side when I write my posts.  Today is no exception.  Earlier he even tried to make his own contribution to the site by sitting on the keyboard.  Sadly my Boris is photo shy and he has informed me that there aren't that many new releases today.

However there are few notable titles, particularly in Mystery, such as "The Family Corleone," by Ed Falco.  This is a prequel to "The Godfather," based on an unpublished screenplay by creator, Mario Puzo.  Mickey Spillane's legacy also continues with "Lady, Go Die!," a new "Mike Hammer" story by Max Allan Collins.  Other new titles in mystery include, "Hush Money," by Chuck Greaves and "The Inquisitor's Key," by Jefferson Bass. 

The other looming mystery is why there are no new releases in Romance today.

Meanwhile, over in Science-Fiction/Fantasy, you'll find "Sandman Volume 9: Kindly Ones" by Neil Gaiman and "Rollback," by Robert J. Sawyer. 

Young Adult fans will be excited to see the latest from Meg Cabot, "Underworld" as well as the fourth book in Carrie Jones' "Need" series, "Endure."  "Hemlock," by Kathleen Peacock and "Struck," by Jennifer Bosworth are also available today.

And that's your Laydown Lowdown for the Week of May 8th.  Boris and I wish you a good day and Happy Reading !  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be.
