Espionage/ True Accounts

One of the best nonfiction books I’ve read this year. Farrow uncovers the story of his career, never expecting the trail of lies, money, and sexual predators to be as long of a winding road as it turns out to be. This reads like a seedier John Grisham novel, with a side order of anger.

Georgette Coan
Georgette Coan is the manager of Barbara's Bookstore at Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills, IL. She began working for Barbara's in 2010 and was the manager at Barbara's in Burr Ridge, IL. Georgette believes that people still buy paper books because they long for the feel of a physical volume in their hands, actual books on their bookshelves at home, a way to have an actual library (you can't wrap an E-reader!) to pass onto their families. "Books harken back to a more nostalgic era. This new technology isn't for everyone; physical copies of books still offer another choice to those who don't care for the newfangled technology known as E-books and E-readers."
