The whole month has been designated "International Expect Success Month," so, I guess in relation to that I'll mention the bestseller The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. (110 times on the Publishers Weekly Bestseller List and still going strong!) We have this title in three formats, book [158.1 BYR], audio [AB/CD 158.1 BYR], and film [DVD 158.1 BYR]. (A little aside, I admit I haven't read the book, but still, I think the real "secret" is getting yourself on Oprah, just like Rhonda Byrne did. Oprah is the secret to selling anything!)
March is also "National Umbrella Month." Quick, what character is closely associated with an umbrella? If you said, Mary Poppins, you're correct! (The only prize I'll offer you is your own satisfaction at knowing you're a smarty-pants!) Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers comes in book [J TRA], audio [J AB TRA], film [J VIDEO MAR], and the soundtrack on CD [CD SOUNDTRACK MAR].
This month is also "Play-the-Recorder Month." How many of you remember playing the recorder in elementary school? Wasn't it fun? How about trying it again? We have Easy Recorder Tunes by Phillip Hawthorn [J 788.36 HAW], or The Usborne First Book of the Recorder by Caroline Hooper [J 788.364 HOO].
Today, March 31, has its own special day--it's "Bunsen Burner Day!" Yes, indeedy, a day for anyone who ever took high school chemistry to celebrate making it through chem lab and living to tell about it! And, what better way to make merry on "Bunsen Burner Day," then by borrowing The Muppet Show [J DVD MUP] and watching Beaker and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew!
I hope all you "Fools" are ready for tomorrow! See you next month.
