So, knowing that my good buddies also have excellent reading/reference taste, if there's any good stuff you know about that often gets missed by libraries, shout it out here. This especially goes for specialty titles relating to hobbies/interests/etc. All I ask is that these be books that are currently in print ... not much point in tormenting them with the unattainable. CD and DVD suggestions are also welcome.
If you want to check whether they already have the item before making a suggestion, here's the link to their online catalogue
My thanks (and that of the library staff and patrons) in advance!
