Lucky Dip: Jasper Fforde – One of our Thursdays is Missing

One of our Thursdays is MissingI’m sorry to say it is one of the worst books I’ve ever borrowed from a library. I couldn’t make sense of it at all, very disappointed with my choice as I’m a great reader of many subjects, but this had me stumped.

Taking Pot Luck at Rhyl Library

Dewis Dall Lucky DipEver accidently stumbled on an author you didn’t think you would like, but absolutely loved?

Well, Rhyl Library is challenging borrowers to try something new with a pot luck choice. All the books are in plain wrappers so you don’t know what you are getting, they are on the usual three week loan, and when you have tried it, there is a card inside to write down what you thought of it. It may be something you love, it may be something you hate. We will be sharing the feedback at the library and on our social media pages, so others can try the books and see for themselves.

Why not call in and give it a go?

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.
