The staff of the Los Angeles Public Library thinks these are the best books of 2014.
LAPL Reads presents:
This is the fourth year LAPL Reads has presented these book lists which reflect the variety of reading interests of our staff and their thoughts on books. In no way are the lists comprehensive in scope, because contrary to popular belief we do not get to read books all day the way book reviewers and critics must do. Many of these books are wonderful for last-minute gifts. We invite all of you to check for the weekly featured reviews on LAPL Reads and to check for the new book lists which are frequently added. With over six million books in the Los Angeles Public Library system we hope there is at least one book, or more, that will make you want to read on and on.
