World as Lover, World as Self by Joanna Macy and Cosmos by Carl Sagan. They are perfect to read side by side. Also leafing through The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld by Terry Pratchett.

Day Book: The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe. A secret library in the "Children's Camp." The urge toward humanity in the midst of depravity. Never forget. Nightstand: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. Character and writing both a charm. Talk about making the best of a bad situation.

Happy Valentine's Day!
And Singles Appreciation Day, as our friend and colleague Krista likes to call it.
There's a new art show up as of today. We're displaying selected pieces from our friend Bill B's private collection, titled Mostly Water. There are some prize pieces up, and yes, they are for sale.
Also not only for sale, but on sale are selected new books, which are in their own section now, with blue tags in them. They're all 50% off the cover price, and there are many great titles in the mix, so we'd recommend coming in to pick some up!
Otherwise, as Bill and Ted used to say, Be Excellent to Each Other.
