Finley Library will be open today, the day after Thanksgiving, from 2-5pm.  (We will not be open Thursday night.)  We hope you had a great family-oriented Thanksgiving with all the trimmings and many things for which to be thankful.  Those of us that volunteer at Finley Library are grateful to you for reading this article, using the library, donating gently used books, giving monetary donations and memorials, sharing your items with us such as copiers and laptop computers and generally being friends of Finley Library!  We know we wouldn't be here without you taking a moment to come in and share with us and checking out a few books.  We again thank the City of Finley for their part in keeping the library here in our town and helping to improve what is available for all in Steele County to use.
We, just last Friday, received some new book donations from Bill Devlin.  Thanks, Bill, and thanks to Jennifer Braaten for her very recent donation of more of the In Death series by J. D. Robb in paperback.  Another box of paperbacks were left in the entryway, but they have not yet been gone through.  We hope there are no duplications, but if there are, the duplications will be showing up at Finley Motors in the next few weeks!  The titles are--Naked in Death, #1; Glory in Death, #2; Immortal in Death, #3; Rapture in Death, #4; Ceremony in death, #5; and Witness in Death, #10, in the In Death series and The Crossing by Michael Connelly, (Harry Bosch #20, (2015); The Sixth Extinction by James Rollins, (Sigma force series #10) (2014);  The Heist by Daniel Silva, (Gabriel Allon series #14) (2014) and Robert B. Parker's Wonderland by Ace Atkins, (Spenser series #2 by Atkins) (2013). Silver Linings by Debbie Macomber (HC/LP)  (Rose Harbor series #4)  (2015) arrived also and will be available for checkout on Friday.

Just finished reading the new book in the Jesse Stone series, Robert B. Parker's The Devil Wins by Reed Farrel Coleman.  As was mentioned in the review of  the last book in the series, Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot, (which the library also has) the "new" author, Reed Farrel Coleman, is into lots more  action and less dialogue than was Robert B. Parker or the author before Coleman, Michael Brandman, but he seems to keep the character of Stone and his relationship with the town and his police force.  That is good because it is hard to lose a well-liked--even though flawed--character like Jesse Stone because the original authors dies.  Anyway, the new book will be reviewed below.
Also took home Make Me by Lee Child, but did not end up reading it although Howie did and wished he hadn't because of the subject matter.   Child's books always touch on raw subjects that are difficult to read about, but I just wanted to let you know what this one was about because it does not actually mention it in the cover flap "review".  Please do not feel like it is a no-no to read--this is just so you don't go  into it blind.  You may or may not be aware of "snuff films".  They are films made of actual murders and then sold on the Internet to those with appetites for such things.  They have not been in the news as much as child pornography or rape and abuse, but they are out there.  This book, Make Me, is about such movies, the people that make them and the people that buy them and, of course, the people who are murdered.  Enough said.
Christmas is coming!!!!
