Congratulations to our two MVCL March Madness Champions!

We gave you the most checked out books of 2018 and you voted for your favorites in Fiction and Non-Fiction!

Haven’t read them yet? Check our catalog to request the physical, audio, or eBook copies.

Fiction Champion:

"A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman

In this "charming debut" (People) from one of Sweden's most successful authors, a grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.

Non-Fiction Champion:

"Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking" by Susan Cain

At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society.
