Live the Life of Riley With These New Adult Fiction Titles From JCPL!

‘Working like a dog,’ ‘dog tired,’ ‘it’s a dog’s life;’ these phrases give me pause as I look over at both of my dogs, stretched out on a couch in each room, comfy and dreaming whatever dreams that dogs dream.

New Adult Fiction @ JCPL: AWESOME!

It is amazing how many times in one episode of ‘The Bachelor’ the word ‘amazing’ is used to describe something.

Apparently, this year is all about ‘localisation,’ defined as “movement toward localized appeal by consumers.”
