As much as I love the library (and use it) I sometimes just want to own a book.

Maybe I need to write in the margins or turn down the pages or pass it on to someone else to read.  For this reason, I am especially delighted that we have a new bookstore in town.  Kilby Books and Video Signals moved from Stow to Maynard last week – located on  Nason Street at the former location of The Movie House.  They have a terrific collection of books and DVD’s (and they are even going to be offering pottery painting)

But here’s the important thing – I checked out their sections on nature books (for this month) and travel writing (for June) and they have some great choices.  

Here are a few titles (I only bought one for each month)

Game Wars: The Undercover Pursuit of Wildlife Poachers by Marc Reisnet

The Weather Makers by Tim Flannery

An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore

Rising from the Plains by John McPhee

Millions of Monarch, Bunches of Beetles – Gilbert Waldbauer

The Lobster Chronicles – Linda Greenlaw

Onward and Upward in the Garden – Katherine S. White (of the New Yorker) – always wanted a copy of this

and looking ahead to June

Venice is a Fish – Tiziano Scarpa

Bella Tuscany – Frances Mayes

Italian Neighbors – Tim Parks

Following the Sun – John Hanson Mitchell

Going Back to Brisbee – Shelton

Best American Travel Writing (2000 and 2006 available)

Honeymoon with my Brother – Franz Wisner (OK – that title sold me)
