Looking for something to read?  One of our staff recommends The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.  Here is what she had to say about it—”A middle aged man returns home and is drawn to the farm at the end of the lane.  There, when he was 7, he met Lettie Hempstock–magical, comforting and wise beyond her years.  A poignant fairy tale of nightmares, magic and memory, beautifully told.”  Click here to request it today!
