"Better late than never..."

Umm, yeah, librarian come lately hasn't posted in a while. Sorry about that! Been a little side-tracked ording books & the like. I know, I know, poor me! In any event, feel free to keep an eye on those shelves for in-incoming, crisp new titles to read.

And, speaking of...

Last night, I hunkered down & devoured Sherman Alexie's "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian..."

If you're not on the hold list for this one already, put yourself on it, like, yesterday!

Yes, it's really that good! :)

On an unrelated note...

When it comes to country music, I readily admit to being a complete illiterate. Seems to me, however, that I've heard at least some of you confess to being a fan. So, help me out here, please?! Which artists &/or bands should I be ordering in order to best beef up our CD selection? In other words, who's hot, and who's not? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Last, but not least, looking forward to a wow-zer book discussion this Wed (that'd be Jan. 30) same time, same place--and hopefully, tuning in for some sage advice on the subject of summer reading.

"Driving Lessons," eh? I've never heard of it, but I'll definitely look into it. Thanks for the idea!

Driving Lessons is the best! It stars Rupert Grint from Harry Potter. I'm not sure if you hav them, but some awesome movies are: Stick It, She's the Man, National Treasure, Hairspray, Fantastic Four, The Breakfast Club, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, and more. Those are just off the top of my head. Another good country singer is Shania Twain.

Ahh, "The Breakfast Club," now there's a classic! Glad to hear that you young'uns are still watching it!!! :) I also enjoyed "Stick It." Very girl-power oriented with great gymnastic scenes. Reminded of back in the day when I used to be more athletic. :)
