Water Your Mind
Summer Reading Raffle

Week II
Patron Top Picks

This is what Orangeburg patrons have to say about the good books they read this week . . .

Capitol Betrayal by William Bernhardt
“I couldn’t put it down. Fast reading with a good plot and well-written. Always enjoy his books.”

Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy by Peter Canellos
“Insightful and frank accounting of Ted Kennedy as well as family dynamics and Washington politics.”

Elliot Allagash by Simon Rich
“This book is “Catcher in the Rye” gone awry. Clever and funny – not for teens only.”

Stay by Allie Larkin
“Such a delightfully entertaining, heart warming story. Great “mind escape” book!”

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
“Tells a story that needs to be told. Very well written. A pleasure to read.”
“A terrific and instructional read. Couldn’t put it down. Amazing that this is a first novel. Unlike any milieu I know, this book was riveting from page one. Real characters jumped off the page. Use of language and vernacular – terrific.”

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
“Beautifully written book that deals with the fictionalized life of a first lady who is clearly Laura Bush. It deals with both the private and political life of the heroine with warmth and compassion.”
