Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rough Guides launches its new "Pocket" series with titles for Barcelona, London, New York City, Paris, Prague, and Rome. Guides to Amsterdam, Athens, Lisbon, and Venice publish in April. The books are slim and not as wide as their big brother city guides and do fit comfortably in one's pocket. They are smaller in other ways as well—Paris has fewer than half the pages found in the regular Rough Guide. But brevity can be good; there is an amazing amount of information packed on each page. Rome, for instance, describes up to 14 bars, restaurants, and stores in two pages. The series succeeds as well-organized, compact guidebooks, though the typeface is small and can be difficult to read. The foldout and transit maps are unbeatable for the size—one could plan a trip on a train and hardly look out of place. The books for all three cities cover the best of in restaurants, museums, shopping, nightlife, and more, as well as accommodations, sights, and restaurants by neighborhood.Verdict Bargain travelers may prefer another guide, like Lonely Planet, since hostels are ignored and hotels listed are rarely under 80 Euros a night. However, as one of the least expensive series of guidebooks out there, these may be hard to pass up.—Sara Miller, Atlanta-Fulton P.L. Syst., Roswell, GA

Hello everyone! Well I should be more active now because after inflexibility and plain abuse from the administration of my nursing home, I am going on pool. This weekend will be the last one I work on for awhile. So that'll be helpful! Anyways here are the announcements for this week. <br> <br> 1. This Sunday (October 12th) will be a medicine cat meeting at The Moonpool. All medicine cats need to attend if at all possible and don't forget that anyone can have their Starclan cats visit them with messages or prophecies (discuss all prophecies in The Question/Discussion Box). It's an all day event so please be sure to come at some point! <br> <br> 2. There is now a new feature added to The Weather Report! From now on we will also be voting on battles that we would like to have take place! Be sure to read The Weather Report for more details and also to vote! <br> <br> 3. Also we have a brand new possible addition to the pact clans for everyone to vote on. It is called Pandemonium, an idea planned out by thee amazing Rosepetal! ;) If accepted it will be just like the pact clans, only rping with our group. Go read Rosepetal's post at The Question/Discussion Box and then vote THERE. The vote will be held through Friday night and then I will count the votes and post the results. I will not be voting. Just know that if we agree to Pandemonium, that will take the place of a rogue group. That doesn't mean small groups of loners can't roam around causing the occasional trouble though! So go vote! <br> <br> 4. I have officially found our new pact clan home! It is the same size as this place and I only pray that it won't switch its books around nearly as much! I hope to have it set up before the next gathering. And I'm going to update The Pact Clan Map in the first result so be sure to use it to get around! <br> <br> 5. Clan leaders, make sure to update the location of your clan if needed. Follow Velvetstar's and Poppystar's examples as they did a great job! <br> <br> Well that's everything I think! Remember my posts at the bottom of each book explain what the book is for if you are unsure. Contact me at Horseclan's camp or The Question/Discussion Box if you need to talk! Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the week! ~ Lilywolf &hearts
