We Read Vibe So You Don't Have To!
* Collection development, anyone? This month, Vibe previews Kelis's yet-to-be-titled cookbook. You remember Kelis, right? Her milkshake is better than yours:
They say that the recipes are tasty and very easy to follow. Kelis says "It's for working people who don't have a whole day to be in the kitchen." Check it out this fall.
* ... And more collection development: the magazine gives a raving review of India.Arie's new album Testimony: Volume 1, Life and Relationship. And while we're on the subject of indie-hip hop/r&b, you should think about buying this for your library. This film is really a who's-who of hip-hop today. It should be a patron-pleaser, as well as an opportunity for you and your colleagues to brush up on the new school.
And if you have a hankering for the old school, a Wu-Tang video collection was just released. Now you can start applying the term "Old Dirty Bastard" to something besides that problem patron who always wants to check out kama sutra books.
