We have increased our limits on select items...

Books on CD: 5

DVDs (7 Days): 5

Magazines: 5

Music CD: 5

We have a growing collection of Blu-ray movies/tv shows. This collection relies 100% on donations so it is quite eclectic. Sometimes, we will get a Blu-ray that also contains a DVD disc. If this happens you will be able to tell by looking in the [Holding Detail] under [Physical Description] and if you see [+1 DVD disc] this will mean the item contains a DVD as well. There are times when we will only have a title in Blu-ray so it's worth looking in the details to see if it may contain a DVD too.

Featured Author

Andrea Rothman

Andrea Rothman is a scientist and a fiction writer. Before becoming a full time writer she worked as a research scientist in four different continents and was awarded two individual grants from the NIH to study the sense of smell. Andrea holds an MFA in creative writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She is at work on her second novel, and lives with her husband and two children in Long Island, New York.

New Book : The DNA of You and Me

A powerful debut novel - a wonderfully engaging infusion of Lab Girl, The Assistants, and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine - that pits the ambition of scientific discovery against the siren call of love. How does smell work? Specifically, how do olfactory sensory neurons reach their targets in the brain, where smell is processed? Justin McKinnon has hired Emily Apell to study that question. What Justin hasn't told Emily is that two other scientists in the lab, Aeden and Allegra, are working on a very similar topic, and their findings may compete with her research. Emily was born focused and driven. She's always been more comfortable staring down the barrel of a microscope than making small talk with strangers. Competition doesn't scare her. Her special place is the lab, where she analyzes DNA sequences, looking for new genes that might be involved in guiding olfactory neurons to their targets. To Emily's great surprise, her rational mind is unsettled by Aeden. As they shift from competitors to colleagues, and then to something more, Emily allows herself to see a future in which she doesn't end up alone. But when Aeden decides to leave the lab, it becomes clear to Emily that she must make a choice: follow her research or follow her heart. A sharp, relevant novel that speaks to the ambitions and desires of modern women, The DNA of You and Me explores the evergreen question of career versus family, the irrational sensibility of love, and whether one can be a loner without a diagnostic label.
