Late-Summer Reading Suggestions

If you are wanting a book to enjoy while you beat the heat or to take on a late summer vacation, we hope you'll consider one of these. 

For an uplifting story of lives saved, let me suggest Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather:

Some highlights of recent reviews at Amazon:  

"This book is an amazing read and my copy has already been lent around many times." 

"I got this book as an Easter gift and immediately began devouring it. I was instantly sorry I hadn't bought it sooner."

"While weather forecasters often appear starchy and bland, Smith makes the weather into an urgent concern, and a remarkable victory. This story turns the weather into a quest, and meteorologists into the most unlikely heroes in recent literature."

Or, for the gripping story of the 2011 Joplin tornado:  

From the most recent review (July 13) at Amazon,

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another fantastic read by a great author.July 13, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: When the Sirens Were Silent (Mass Market Paperback)
Mike Smith does a great job of reviewing what happened that horrible day in Joplin. Also at the end he provides the public with numerous ways to help prepare yourself for severe weather. If you enjoyed his first book "Warnings" you will also enjoy this one.

Of course, both are available for Kindle and Nook.
