On a recent visit to Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo I found several books to drool over and covet. I thought, since it’s so chilly out lately, you may want to head to Liberty Bay or your own favorite bookstore to check out these offerings.

The Earth stood still, and so did the plot

  • Dec 17, 2008 at 12:00AM

Director Scott Derrickson’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” remake of Robert Wise’s 1951 creation, might be better sold as an accidental comedy than an actual world’s end thriller.

Split down the middle

  • Dec 13, 2008 at 12:00AM

A reader hypothesized in an email this week about why the current City Council consistently votes 4-3 on most issues.
