Fans of the 1990s family sitcom Full House may enjoy this new-to-DVD series starring Candace Cameron Bure. Bure, former child star of Full House and most recently, Fuller House, plays the lead in this murder mystery show. This TV series is based on Charlaine Harris’ Aurora Teagarden crime novels. The show is fun, light and keeps you guessing! Both the books and DVDs are available via Ocean State Libraries. See below for links to each. -Kristin

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
I’ve reflected on this book many times since I first read it a dozen years ago. So when it was my turn to suggest a book club title, I was eager to share this with my friends.
Full of melancholy yet hopefulness with quirky but universal characters, The History of Love takes you on a journey through time and place. From pre World War II Poland to modern day New York, the story of a long lost manuscript and how it has brought people together will stay with you for a long, long time. – Nancy

“Recommending First Man feels a little like giving a gift at Christmas. It’s a great film with almost real action scenes, skillful camera and cinematographic work that supplies its’ own drama, and a script tethered tightly to the film. The in-cabin perspective makes the experience palpable and believable, shining a light on the Gemini/Apollo missions to reach the moon. Steve recommends the film with four rockets and two boosters out of 5 rockets! Click on the image to find this item in our catalog.

Most days I feel like I spend way too much time on my smartphone. Don’t you? Well then I suggest this book! It is quick, easy to read and has great tips on stop using your phone so often. This book has inspired me to leave my phone in the kitchen over night (instead of the bedside table, which is where you will find most people’s smartphone – YIKES!!!).
