"Four really good [books] written in different styles and for varied purposes, but all contributing to the energy of writing by New Jerseyans. Use your gift cards to open one of these doors, as they are all accessible and the writing is strong. No coffee-table books or "You Might be a Redneck If..." desk calendars, please. Read your way into 2008."
