Sometimes it’s just easier on the eyes to read a large print book. Sometimes I take a book off the regular shelf, and open it up to find that it has tiniest print I’ve ever seen. I get tired of squinting, so I turn to our large print collection. I never have to worry about finding something I like because it is jam packed with the hottest best sellers, sizzling romances, mysterious mysteries, engrossing biographies and hundreds of non-fiction titles on all kinds of subjects. We regularly add to our already terrific collection to meet everyone’s needs.
Often times, the large print edition of a bestselling author’s new book will be simultaneously published along with the regular edition. That’s wonderful news to our many large print readers. I am recommending a few large prints this month. Stop by to peruse the shelves or ask us for more recommendations. Stop squinting and read with pleasure.
The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler
The brutal slaying of gambling addict Anders Ek, his wife, and his younger daughter propels this outstanding thriller debut . . . A well-integrated subplot involving a gang of terrifying boys and girls adds to the suspense. This is a Swedish thriller on a high international level with a smart and surprising plot.
Quinn by Iris Johansen
#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen explores the darkest corners of the human heart as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan closes in on the killer who stole her daughter many years ago. The search travels deeper and deeper into a web of murder and madness. A thriller…suspense that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
Wyoming Tough by Diana Palmer
A cowboy through and through, ranch owner Mallory Kirk knows what it means to put in a full day’s work. But does his new cowgirl? He has his doubts that Morie Brannt will be able to pull her own weight, even if the petite young woman does seem to have a lot of spirit. Diana Palmer has been a staple among romance fans for years now. With the introduction of the Kirk brothers, she lays the ground work for more stories involving Cane, the war vet, and Dalton the former border agent.
Savage Nature by Christine Feehan
Savage Nature is the fifth novel in Christine Feehan’s world of leopard shifters and it is outstanding on every level. There is action, suspense, adventure & excitement.

Family Blessings by Fern Michaels
Michaels revisits the Cisco family–famous candy company owners in Pennsylvania. Loretta, the matriarch, and her beau, Ezra, are lucky enough to survive a surprise tornado that flattens her family home. The close-knit community quickly pulls together to aid everyone who was affected, but Loretta, who is usually levelheaded has a difficult time getting over the loss of her things.
The Bride Wore Scarlet by Liz Carlyle
Passion and secrets simmer in Victorian London. Another intriguing novel from Carlyle features the mysterious men of the St. James Society. There is a heroine (Anais de Rohan); a villain (Lezennes, who rivals all villains); a sexy dashing hero (Lord Geoff Bessett); sword fights; romance and intrigue.
11/22/63 by Stephen King
On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? A dramatic novel about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination. Jake Epping is presented with something inconceivable, a sort of wormhole in time. It leads from 2011 Maine to September 9, 1958. You can visit the past for as long as you like–years even–but when you return to the present it’s always exactly two minutes later. Each visit is a “reset.” You can change the past.
V is for Vengeance by Sue Grafton
V: Victim. Violence. Vengeance. A web of dangerous relationships lies at the heart of V is for Vengeance, a Kinsey Millhone novel. This book has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. The book is broken into sections by three main characters – Kinsey, our PI friend from the past series of A-U, Nora who is a rich, lonely, housewife, and Dante, a small-town thug who has a conscience and a heart, even though he is a much feared man. The continuity of the story from earlier books makes it enjoyable for long time readers but it can also be enjoyed by new readers.
