You’ve watched the debates. You’ve quadruple-checked your voter registration status. You’ve foisted your political views upon others and made compelling arguments in your candidate’s favor (you can stop that now and get back on speaking terms with family and co-workers; we’re all in this together). You’ve boned up on the Electoral College and are now fully in-the-know about the nuts and bolts of American democracy. The only thing left to do now is vote. The lines will probably be long so you may want to (shameless plug alert!) grab a book or two from DCPL.
Here are some cool random books that are completely unrelated to politics (seriously, you have to come up for air sometimes):
Bedrooms by Mary Gilliatt (Jacqui Small): Why not daydream about redecorating your living space to look like the amazing rooms in this book?
The Indie Band Survival Guide: The Complete Guide for The Do-It-Yourself Musician by Randy Chertkow and Jason Feehan (St. Martin’s Griffin): My plan for surviving the Financial Crisis? Becoming a rock star. (Awesome!)
Song; The World’s Best Songwriters on Creating the Music That Moves Us by J. Douglas Waterman (Writer’s Digest Books/ F+W Publishing) The top songwriters in the business share their insights, their inspirations and the secrets of their successes.
Diana Ross: An Unauthorized Biography by J. Randy Tarraborelli (Citadel Press): Author Tarraborelli has profiled some of the greatest legends in entertainment including Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson so you know you’re in for a thick, juicy read. You ought to be able to polish off all 539 pages of it while you wait.
Happy Voting! Bring something to read…
