Helestoryofhappymarriageeight-hundred-grapesstevejobsn is a new member of our book club that meets on the last Tuesday night of the month¬†at 6:30 pm. Here’s what she had to say about the club’s recent selection This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett: “Soon after I started reading this book I knew I had stepped into literary excellence. [Patchett] holds your attention with vignettes about her life and thoughts. It made me want to read her novels.”

Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave was reviewed by Sherri who says the book contains a nice description of Sebastopol. She writes,”It’s nice to read about a local place with a hint of romance tied in.”

I, Steve: Steve Jobs in His Own Words edited by George Beahm contains more than 200 insightful quotes from the late co-founder of Apple. Library patron Jamie recommends it and calls it “an homage to a great man who wanted to change the world.”
