It began with Eragon... It ends with Inheritance.
Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.
Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.
The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

Neil Patrick Harris stars as Billy, A.K.A. Dr. Horrible, a budding super-villain whose plans for world domination continually go awry. His two goals: getting accepted into the Evil League of Evil, and working up the guts to speak to his laundromat crush Penny, played by Felicia Day. The only thing standing in his way is Captain Hammer, Billy's superhero arch-nemesis played by Nathan Fillion. With one big score, Billy could get into the E.L.E. and earn the respect of Penny, but only if he can keep her away from the dashing Captain Hammer...

I love everything Christmas-related so you'll have to bear with me over the next two weeks! I was sent this in an email from a friend. One thing I really enjoy doing during December is taking a drive to see the Christmas lights on the houses. Although I did not drive all the way to Ohio to see these lights, I think you will enjoy them nonetheless:

The new City of Manitowoc budget calls for $250,000 in cuts, nearly $100,000 more than the 10% reduction proposed by Mayor Nickels. Library management has been working on ways to make the initial $166,553 reduction while maintaining service. The additional cuts make that impossible.
These cuts could mean a reduction in teen library services which means plans for a new teen space could end, and negative effects of summer reading program, teen programs, teen book collection, and battle of the books. If you wish to help, please attend the meeting TOMORROW - Thursday, December 8, at 5 p.m. in the City Council Chambers to show your support for the teen services provided by Manitowoc Public Library.
Directions -- City Hall - (by the river) When you enter City Hall from main entrance, take a right to get to the Council Chambers.
Please come to show your support and pass along the word!
