    It's been a while since I've made an announcement about new books, probably because there's the pictorial list in the navbar about it -- the one that links back to my LibraryThing list. But we just received a bunch of new and interesting looking titles, so I thought I'd highlight a couple of them for you.
    Battlestar Galactica: The Official Companion: are you a fan of space opera and BG? Here's the official companion book with exclusive interviews, unseen photos, episode guide, and more!
    Smallville, Season 5: Another official companion, with excerpts from newspapers, color photos, interviews, and... more!
    Game by Walter Dean Myers: another great sports book (basketball) by Myers -- need I say more?
    Castaways by Vollmar and Callejo: a graphic novel recounting the story of a young boy who hops a train in order to escape the harrowing poverty of rural life during the Great Depression.
    Me, the Missing, and the Dead by Jenny Valentine: Lucas finds himself in possession of an urn -- with somebody's ashes inside! He soon becomes convinced that person belonging to the ashes is trying to tell him something about his missing father...
    We also have Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor, in which all Anna wants is a normal life, but her mom makes that practically impossible;
    The Declaration by Gemma Malley, where children born outside the Declaration are considered surplus and criminals -- simply for being born!
    and Saturday Night Dirt by Will Weaver, about what happens at the Speedway in a small Minnesota town.

    Our new book display is filled to practically overflowing -- hope you make it in this weekend to discover some of these fabulous books!
