Mean Streak Adult Fiction Title of the Month

MEAN STREAK By Sandra Brown. Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina.

Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce", Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive. 

                                       Nonfiction Title of the MonthAmerica Imagine

AMERICA: IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT HER By Dinesh D'Souza. Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world? D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration.  If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished;  if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformed - and the federal government can do the reforming.
