Over the weekend, the Reference and User Services Division, a division of the American Library Association, rocked my reading world by announcing the 2011 Notable Books list.
Several of these titles are already quite popular. When I checked for them in our catalog, I had to join a request list. But I was able to check out "The Lonely Polygamist" by Brady Udall from the fiction portion, and "Citizens of London" by Lynne Olson from the nonfiction.
The libraries seldom close for snow days, and didn't close today, but what a perfect day it would be for sitting down with one of these, feet up, warmly wrapped up, coffee or cocoa nearby, with hours of reading ahead.
