August 2017
August is here, the last month of summer. There's still time for picnics, pool parties, and camping trips. That means there is still time to read a great book. Come by the store and get a copy of "The Late Show" by Michael Connelly, or "Killers of the Flower Moon" by David Grann. If you're a gardener, it's time to put up all that great produce from your garden or the berries you've picked. Stop in and get a copy of Bob Krumm's book, "The Rocky Mountain Berry Book", or "The Joy of Pickling" by Linda Ziedrich.
We also carry field guides, maps, and road atlases too. Get in one more road trip before the kids go back to school.
At Sheridan Stationery Books & Gallery you'll find friendly, helpful staff who are always happy to help you find just the book you need.

Book Signing for
"Paradise Valley"
by C.J. Box
Friday, August 4th
6:00 pm
 Join us on August 4th when we host C.J. Box for a book signing for his newest title. He will be here at 6:00 pm. Don't miss out, come get an autographed copy for yourself or a friend.

Cassie Dewell, chief investigator of the Bakken County Sheriff's Department in North Dakota, is still chasing truck-driving serial killer Ronald Pergram, aka the Lizard King, and thinks she's closing in as the book opens. When her initial effort is derailed, she finds herself off the force, tracking a couple of missing kids (one of them Kyle Westergaard, another returning character) without knowing the cases are linked together. Cassie is a great character dogged yet self-doubting and, in the Lizard King, Box has a villain well worthy of bringing back here. While the ending doesn't quite equal the breathless, thunderous climaxes he's given us before, Box deftly delivers page-turning suspense. Readers who couldn't put down Badlands will definitely want to pick this one up.

Recipe Corner

Mediterranean Refrigerator    Pickles


Makes about 1 (1-Quart) jar or 2 (1-Pint) Jars

2 pounds desired vegetables (see vegetable choices below)
2 cups white vinegar or red wine vinegar (5% acidity), or balsamic vinegar, or a combination
1 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt for pickling
2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano or basil
2 teaspoons citrus zest
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 small bay leaves.

This recipe works with any combination of the following vegetables: asparagus, button mushrooms, green beans, cauliflower, eggplant, onions, radishes, bell peppers, chile peppers, cherry or grape tomatoes, or zucchini.

1. Wash, trim, and peel vegetables; leave whole (depending on size), halve, quarter, slice, or chop.
2. Bring the vinegar and next 8 ingredients to a boil in a small stainless-steel or enameled saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt.
3. Tightly pack the vegetables into 1 hot (1-quart) or 2 hot (1-pint) jars. Pour the hot brine over the vegetables to cover. Cover jar with lid; let stand 1 hour or until cooled to room temperature. Store in refrigerator for 3 weeks for the best flavor; consume within 3 months. (The longer the pickles stand in the refrigerator, the more flavorful they will become.)



I just finished "House of Spies," and I loved it! Daniel Silva has a way of writing that makes me feel like the action has really happened.  He's one of my favs.

 

 

A heart-stopping tale of suspense, Daniel Silva's runaway bestseller The Black Widow was one of 2016's biggest novels. Now, in House of Spies, Gabriel Allon is back and out for revenge--determined to hunt down the world's most dangerous terrorist, a shadowy ISIS mastermind known only as Saladin.

Four months after the deadliest attack on the American homeland since 9/11, terrorists leave a trail of carnage through London's glittering West End. The attack is a brilliant feat of planning and secrecy, but with one loose thread: the French-Moroccan street criminal and ISIS operative who supplied the combat assault rifles.

The thread leads Gabriel Allon and his team of operatives to the south of France and to the gilded doorstep of Jean-Luc Martel and Olivia Watson. A beautiful former British fashion model, Olivia pretends not to know that the true source of Martel's enormous wealth is drugs. And Martel, likewise, turns a blind eye to the fact he is doing business with a man whose objective is the very destruction of the West. Together, under Gabriel's skilled hand, they will become an unlikely pair of heroes in the global war on terror.

Elegant, sophisticated, and filled with unexpected moments of wit and grace, the story moves swiftly from the glamour of Saint-Tropez to the grit of Casablanca and, finally, to an electrifying climax that will leave readers breathless long after they turn the final page. But House of Spies is more than just riveting entertainment; it is a dazzling tale of avarice and redemption, set against the backdrop of the great conflict of our times. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva is "quite simply the best" (Kansas City Star).
