Pat's Picks from 2013

Today we are letting you in on a little secret. Pat, our lovely Branch Manager at City Library is a great source of book recommendations. Pat has shared her reading list for 2013, complete with star ratings. I concur with Pat's ratings for The Dunbar Case, Roll With It and The Rosie Project (my favourite of them all!). I'll have to catch up on the rest of the titles.

I've highlighted the titles you can borrow as eBooks from our eCollections. Happy Reading!
