to pick up a few books for your holiday gifts. Won't you consider books by the fabulous guest bloggers we've hosted over the past year? Or the books they've recommended? Or the books by our wonderful roster of correspondents? And I'll make a special pitch for David Lehman's latest, A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters American Songs, and Yeshiva Boys. Remember, many of the songs you'll be singing this week were written by the songwriters profiled in A Fine Romance. How about that!
ps. And The Best American Poetry 2009 makes a fine gift too!
