Christmas Leftovers

Alistair Sim as Ebeneezer Scrooge, pre-ghostly visitations, 1951

I was going to blog about the holiday goodies you can check out from the library to have on hand to read to your kids in front of the fire or to slide into the DVD player when everybody's stuffed with Christmas goose, but you beat me to it! All the classics, like A Christmas Carol, or The Gift of the Magi, or A Visit from St. Nicholas, are just about gone! We're down to slim pickings in the Christmas department, except for music. We still have a lot of Christmas CDs to check out. Here's a list of some of them:

And here's a list of some Christmas orphans: funky DVDs that will be alone here in the dark library on Christmas Eve if somebody doesn't take them home:

And here's a little something new for 2011: a puzzle.
If it's a hit, I'll post more (if I can think of more).

So here goes: Guess the title of the book depicted literally in the photo to the right and win our admiration. (Click the photo to enlarge it.)

We have a winner! Did you get it right away? Was it easy or hard?

It took a little while. The first thing I thought of was Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four" because of the 2+2=5. But the "depicted literally" phrase in the hint kept nagging at me, and finally it just popped into my head: they're corrections! That was definitely fun. Please keep it up!

Oh good! I hoped it was a little tough. Look for another one a week from Monday.
