New Books!

We have many new books received over the winter holiday season - sorry, via the US Mail, not Santa and his reindeer ;-). Stop in and have a look at them! They are in the books cases on your left as you walk into our cafe. Come over and take one or two to look at as you sit and enjoy a coffee. Here's three sample titles:
  • Cannibal Island: Death in a Siberian Gulag by Nicholas Werth. Rather grim subject matter, yes, but a well reviewed title focusing on one particular episode of the Siberian camps...
  • Box Boats: How Container Shipping Changed the World, by Brian Cudahy. One of those books that illuminates the story of something seemingly mundane, but absolutely transformational in its own way.
  • Penicillin: Triumph and Tragedy, by Robert Bud. A scientific history of the discovery and establishment of this famed "wonder" drug.

Hurry, or they may be checked out before you get here :-)
