What's New With Amazon
by Brandi Scardilli
Amazon has had a busy 2018 … well, it's always busy. It's Amazon. The president has continued to complain about the company, and Gizmodo speculates that his executive order calling for a review of the U.S. Postal Service's practices is another way to attack Amazon. There are reports of employee mistreatment, questionable (loose) associations with Breitbart and the National Rifle Association (NRA), and more controversies: pressuring its tenants in Seattle, ignoring scams in CreateSpace, and mismanaging the Kindle Store.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
