Bookcover: The Year 1000Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Year 1000: What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium by Robert Lacey and Danny Danziger.
Recommended by: Joseph, Nonfiction Librarian
In this interesting little volume, Lacey and Danziger take us into a medieval world which is at times both very alike and very different from our own.  Using a contemporary calendar to guide the reader through the months of the year, and with doses of humor and trivia along the way, we are introduced to the daily life of royalty, churchmen and, more often, the ordinary man and woman.  We learn how they worked, how they played, how they talked, and even how they ate.  The Year 1000 is an accessible overview of the period and a surprisingly entertaining read.

Bookcover: Mistaken IdentityHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Mistaken Identity by Don & Susie Van Ryn and Newell, Colleen & Whitney Cerak
Recommended by: Jason, Librarian
On the one side disturbing and shocking and on the other spiritual and encouraging. This is the story of two families who overcame tremendous challenges in a way that I found inspiring.

Bookcover: The Speed of DarkHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
Recommended by: Debbie, Associate Librarian
In a future world where a cure for adult autism has been discovered, the hero of this book has to decide whether or not he wants to be "cured".  This book, while written as fiction, gives a good insight to how people with autism think and function in a society of "normal" people.
