Quick reminder that we’re building our Holiday/Winter Reading List and hope you will add a title or two. You can leave your suggestions as a comment here, or check out the list and add some recommendations there.

Also, I just finished the memoir from Dinty Moore, Between Panic and Desire, which will be the focus of our December 1 Readers & Writers program. Dinty is part of the St. Lawrence University Writers Series and will be in town next week to give a public reading (Thursday, December 2 at 8 pm in Sykes Common Room on the SLU campus), and to be on our Wednesday evening program (at 7 pm). I loved his memoir. Highly recommend it.  Quirky and innovative.

Remember, for our Winter Reading List, anything goes: classics, newly published titles, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, young adult.

Find your favorite books at the public library. For gift giving, remember our friends at the booksellers across the region who offer discounts on R&W selections.

    A little shameless self promotion here.
    My guide to Hamilton County – Adirondack Hikes in Hamilton County – continues to do well here in the Adirondacks and on Amazon and other online book sellers.
    For something truly different, as long as you don’t have a problem with sex and violence, are my vampire novels – The Dancing Valkyrie and The Vampire Valkyrie.
    I’m now working on the third in the vampire series – And God Created Vampires – which won’t be completed until sometime 2011.
    Sex and violence yes but trying to do something never attempted with the vampire story. The title of the last book says it all. What if vampires were not evil, not any more evil than lions and tigers, and were just creatures very similar to humans but not really human?

    A historical perspective of economics, written in plain English (no graphs, equations, or economics specific terminology), that will alter the way you look at economics and the economy.

    ‘Basic Economics – A Citizens Guide to the Economy’ by Dr. Thomas Sowell.
