The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt resumed its place at the top of the Fiction list this week, bumping Robert Galbraith's (aka J.K. Rowling) The Silkworm down to the second spot. There were no changes to the top two on the Nonfiction list with Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand remaining at number one.  

Both the Fiction and Nonfiction lists gained two new titles this week. Brad Thor's thriller, Act of War, and Jojo Moye's latest One Plus One debuted on the Fiction list at numbers 6 and 8 respectively.  In Nonfiction, we welcomed  America by Dinesh D'Souza and Sally Ride by Lynn Sherr. 

Click on any title on the list to place a hold on an item free of charge.  You will need to know your library card number and the last four digits of the phone number associated with your card.
