I check out a lot of things from the library each month. If I were to do one of those library use calculators, I'm sure my use well exceeds the taxes I pay for library service. This month I did a lot of browsing and not a lot of reading. That's ok - I enjoyed a lot of different types of items all checked out from my library!
Locally Buzzed: The Great Michigan Beer Movie
A group of beer enthusiasts spent a week touring around Michigan breweries, interviewing beer drinkers, brewery owners, and brewers. This documentary is the result. It is recommended to people who like: beer, microbrews, Michigan companies, and stories about the positive turnaround of the Michigan economy.

This is the companion book to the BBC tv series. I admit, I mostly looked at the pictures, but was fascinated by the variety of plants, animals, and landforms pictured in it. Beautiful photography!
This is not the issue I checked out - I believe I took September and October 2011. I really like this magazine. It has all the goodness of Consumer Reports, but more articles and tips than "reports."
I've seen a few episodes of Doctor Who in my time - mostly in the mid-80s when I was a middle schooler and didn't really understand it. A bunch of librarians I follow on Twitter have been raving about Doctor Who lately, so I decided to check it out again. Hilarious! I've really enjoyed it now that I am old enough to "get" it. Good stuff.
