“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
— Edith Lovejoy Pierce
January is a month for starting over, trying new things and focusing on what you want to achieve in the coming year. At the library we believe books can inspire you, help you with that fresh start, or even keep your good habits going! Maybe there is a goal you want to reach, or a project you want to begin working on, and we have new books that can encourage you. Here are a few titles that are coming soon to a library near you.
“Begin Again: Your Hope and Renewal Start Today,” by the ever hopeful and inspirational author Max Lucado. This book will “prepare you for the journey ahead by encouraging you to...take the next step toward hope and renewal”
Ethan Kross, psychologist and a leading expert on controlling the conscious mind, has written “Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It.” His debut book combines anecdotes and science to explore the idea of “mental chatter,” which can be harmful and even debilitating. The author explains how to use your inner voice to make improvements, thus creating a life that’s more fulfilling and productive as a result.
In “Hello, Habits: A Minimalist’s Guide to a Better Life,” Fumio Sasaki writes about forming new habits and the science behind making them stick. The author even has a section about why New Year’s resolutions never worked for him, but don’t let that dissuade you from trying anyway.
More books coming in January:

“Complete Container Herb Gardening: Design and Grow Beautiful, Bountiful Herb-Filled Pots” by Sue Goetz
