One heat wave's behind us. The weather forecasters predict that more scorching temperatures are on their way. Walking around outside at noon feels a bit like vacationing on Mercury. But hey, no sweat-- I have just the book for you!
When your air conditoner is laboring and it's too hot to sleep, you can always rely on a good, gripping horror novel to freeze you to the marrow. As a bonus, all the titles I've selected are set in icy climes: Antarctica, Scandinavia, Alaska, Russia, northern Canada-- even deep space! Let the library help you beat your soaring electric bill this month with our own brand of chilling out. (And if these don't work... don't forget that the library is air conditioned!)
