Make it work! It isn’t just a standard line on the television show, Project Runway, its Tim Gunn’s mantra. In his latest book, Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work, Gunn combines his memoirs and advice for some great advice for daily living. Some of his rules include: “use technology, don’t let it use you”; “take the high road” and, my personal favorite, “never underestimate karma.” Tim Gunn is witty, articulate, thoughtful and down-to-earth in his words. This is fascinating and often, entertaining read.

We all have our favorites…I love Agatha Christie’s, Hercule Poirot series, in books, but especially on TV with David Suchet. Now in an interesting twist a television show, ABC’s TV show “Castle” has generated a novel. The premise of the show is that fictionalized novelist Richard Castle works with the police department to “help” them solve crimes. Now he not only “solves’ crimes on TV, but is “writing” novels for the “real world.” In Heat Wave, tough and sexy New York police detective Nikki Heat leads the investigation into the death of a New York real estate tycoon who plunged to his death on a Manhattan sidewalk. This has become incredibly popular with our patrons. But then again we do have the Mr. Monk books….
