    If you like to listen to audio books, try Metropolitan Library System’s hoopla Digital, where there is never any waiting for the book you choose. You can download 6 items per month, ending on the last day of the month and resetting on the first of each month. All you need is your library card number, and a web browser, smart phone, or tablet, and you can keep them for 3 weeks. I downloaded them using the hoopla app on my android phone. If you don’t have a particular title or author in mind, try browsing some of the fun categories such as “happier family road trips,” “best of hoopla 2017,” or “celebrity readers.”

    This is the time of year when I go into movie-watching high gear. At any other time of year, I can watch whatever strikes my fancy, be it studio blockbuster or weird indie film. But between December and March, I’ve got to get as many of the major award nominees watched as possible before the telecasts of the awards ceremonies, so I can feel cultured while I critique everyone’s outfits and speeches. It’s tradition.
