Fiction: “Bloodless” by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child


“On the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305–Portland to Seattle–with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night. Fifty years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins–sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire. As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how–or if–these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history.” –Amazon

Nonfiction: “Dad, how do I?: practical ‘dadvice’ for everyday tasks and successful living” by Rob Kenney

“Dad, How Do I?” By Maribeth Vaughn/Daily Reporter Staff Writer /
“Dad, How Do I?”

“From the host of the YouTube channel that went viral— ‘Dad, How Do I?’—comes a book that’s part memoir/part inspiration/part DIY.

Rob Kenney’s father left him and his seven siblings when he was fourteen years old, and the youngest had to fend for themselves. He wished that he had someone who could teach him the basics—how to tie a tie, jump-start a car, unclog a drain, use tools properly—as well as succeed in life. But he and his siblings had to figure these things out on their own.

Now a father himself, Rob decided that he would help people out by providing those how-to tips as well as advice—and even throw in some bad dad jokes.” — Amazon
