Christmas fun

Tired of shopping, wrapping, and decorating? Why not rest a spell and try your hand at some Christmas trivia, color with the kids awhile, or play some games. I did a simple internet search and found the following web sites. If you know of other fun sites for Christmas trivia, games, and coloring pages, please feel free to add to the list.

Ten most checked out fiction books of 2008

I have been sitting in my office trying to work, but my eyes are drawn to the one outside window I can see from my desk. At one point I thought for sure it was going to pour rain. Well, rain just makes me think of being home curled up in my comfortable chair with a good book. Of course, then my mind wanders to book titles and authors. What will I pick? There are so many to select from that the saying about so many book so little time is true. While learning the ropes of my new position, I came across a report that lets me see what were the most checked out books in certain areas in 2008. I thought that seeing what others have read will help me pick something different to read. Then I thought that you might also be interested in seeing what others are reading. Today I will list the 10 most checked out fiction books of 2008 at Decatur Public Library. The other breakdowns of mystery, science fiction, and inspirational will come later.
