Chicago Public Library

is just one of the wonderful public libraries across the nation.  But I just learned this evening that our library is the largest public library in the nation.  I am proud that Chicago boasts this wonderful fact and I think we should all celebrate and visit our local library. 

If you have not been to a library lately, you will be surprised to see all of the services they offer. There are computers, meeting rooms, book clubs, dvds, cds and books on tape too.  They have programs and lectures and book clubs too.  And of course lets not forget the wealth of books to pick from in any genre you can think of. 

Why not go to a library this holiday season?  Meet a friend at the library. Or simply take some time by yourself to explore, you will be glad you did.

everyone worth knowing

is a book from the same author of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, Lauren Weisberger.  I just finished listening to this today on cd.  I really enjoyed it and it made the commute enjoyable as well as just short trips to the grocery store and gym. 

Why not suggest to a group of friends that everyone buys a book on cd or tape this holiday and then you pass them around. It could be just the one or it could be every quarter. 

This one I received from my sister in law for my birthday so thanks Penny, I really enjoyed it.  I am looking forward to passing this on so someone else can enjoy it.

Giving a book is a great idea for any holiday or special day of the year. If you are trying to find out what is new in the book world there are a number of places to look, but this was the first one that came right into my mailbox, so I thought I would share it.

This is the Barnes and Nobel on line holiday gift catalogue, http://www.barnesandnoble.com/holiday-gifts/index.asp?r=1
It is always good to get an idea or two and then go to your favorite bookstore and get lost in the shelves. There are books for everyon on your list.
