Let It Snow?

Snow and Skiers

A scene like this one may not be very likely here in Houston, where we sometimes run our air conditioners twelve months a year.  But we can still enjoy the idea of snow and cold weather that seems to go along with the holiday season in the minds of many.  Through the end of the year, we'll have our Christmas books on display and we invite you to come browse the table for cookbooks, craft books, novels, and movies with a seasonal theme.  As these materials are snapped up, we will replenish the display, so keep checking.
