The Many Covers of Bram Stoker's Dracula

As I was requesting copies of Bram Stoker's Dracula for our Classic Reader's Book Club, I was inspired by the many book covers. The art varies so dractically and is very interesting. On November 23rd at 2:00 pm, we will be hosting a book club discussing horror classic.         

Hurray for Logic!

I miss my college logic class. Without a doubt, logic was my favorite class in college. I scored so well in the class that the teacher told me that I didn’t even have to take the final. If I made a zero on the final I would still have an A in the class. Today, logic is my favorite past time. Whether I am trying to solve a Sudoku puzzle, bending my mind around a “false” logic puzzle, solving cryptograms or working on any other kind of puzzle, I love solving logic puzzles!

What the Dewey?

Many people are apparently intimidated by the Dewey Decimal system! I know, can you believe it!?! Well, once upon a time so was I, but that’s another story. The fact is, those numbers on the spines of the nonfiction books (you know, the mostly serious books) tell you what the book is about. Use the charts we have up, one of our bookmarks, or ask a librarian to find the number of your favorite subject. Most of the books on your favorite pastime will be grouped together; e.g. 629 = cars, 741.597 = comics, 641.5 = cooking. So go find your number! You can thank me later.
