Just Added to the Database

The Just Added to the Database list is freshly updated. Not so much new fiction was ordered (or added from donations) in the past couple of weeks, but there's lots of nonfiction, media materials, childrens' books, large print titles...

Some of the more seductive nonfiction titles include How the Indians lost their land : law and power on the frontier by Stuart Banner; Feet to the fire : the media after 9/11 : top journalists speak out, edited by Kristina Borjesson; a major book of Richard Avedon photographs, Woman in the Mirror : 1945-2004; a biography of Maimonides by Sherwin Nuland; and a book about mass media and language, Slam dunks and no-brainers : language in your life, the media, business, politics, and, like, whatever by Leslie Savan.

Garth Nix has a new fantasy novel, Sir Thursday, book four in his Keys to the Kingdom series. There's a new Santa Fe book, The essence of Santa Fe : from a way of life to a style by Jerilou Hammett , Kingsley Hammett, and Peter Scholz; audio versions of Greg Iles' Turning Angel and John Lescroart's The Hunt Club, and of David Halberstam's The education of a coach, also very new. What else? An IMAX DVD about Antarctica, the four Matrix titles on DVD, and, oh, a couple hundred more titles.

Take a look at the list. As always, you can place holds on the titles that aren't actually here yet.
