Visit Your Local Library Today

I think one of the coolest things about living in the United States is our commitment to building and maintaining Libraries. Libraries are just like Barnes & Noble only you get to take the books home with you for free for two weeks. How awesome is that? And if you haven't been to the Library in years, you'd be amazed at the changes, namely the ability to also check out DVD movies and music C.D.'s, as well. We often rent children's videos for our kids. Personally, I like to check out the "New Arrivals" book section. I recently checked out "Self Help, Inc. Makeover Culture in American Life" by Micki McGee. It's back cover reads

A lucid and fascinating treatment of the modern obsession with work and self-improvement, this book will strike a chord with its diagnosis of the self-help trap and with its suggestions for how we can address the alienating conditions of modern work and family life.

It's a little heavy but, so far I'm really enjoying it. You can pick it up at or better yet, go see if you can find it in your local library.

For all that's wrong with America, our Libraries are one thing to be praised.
