Reading in public allows people to ask gamers about their hobby and allows gamers to share their hobby with those who might not be familiar with it.

In case you haven't see either version, <em>The Prisoner</em> is about a spy (Number 6) who is held prisoner at a seaside town where everyone is assigned a number and no one asks questions. Number 6 has to figure out who kidnapped him, why they are holding him hostage, and how to escape. http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/adult/prisoner#comments Adults Movies & Television 1960s bbc Prisoner spies Fri, 27 Nov 2009 04:00:35 +0000 Elisa 14652 at http://www.cantonpl.org Native American Flute Music http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/art/native-american-flute-music Recently, I discovered the beauty of <a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search/Xnative+american+flute+music">Native American flute music</a>. The flute has a very serene and soothing sound. I particularly enjoy the one and two flute sounds of <a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search/aNakai+R+Carlos+1946">R. Carlos Nakai's</a> music.

The author, Ellen Graf, is honest and non-judgmental in sharing her and her husband's joys and challenges with language, culture, and marriage. I recommend this to anyone who has ever been in a relationship they found challenging or who enjoys reading about culture and relationships. http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/social-science/natural-laws-good-luck#comments Social Science Adults Non-fiction China marriage relationships Wed, 09 Sep 2009 23:52:56 +0000 Elisa 13720 at http://www.cantonpl.org Dressing up: Canton women's clothing from 1880-1950 http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/history/dressing-canton-womens-clothing-1880-1950 <p>Have you ever wondered what your grandmother or great-grandmother would have worn when she was young?
