Whatcha up to this weekend?

Whether you and your loved ones are observing Passover, celebrating Easter, or just spending a (hopefully sunny, but probably not; sigh) spring weekend together, enjoy!

We think every occasion is made better with books, so here are some booklists recommending titles to take along, whatever the festivities. And if you, like Shoshana*, are having a hard time deciding which ones to take, might we suggest a recent issue of the Magazine? 😉

*Her pre-Passover/Haiku Day poem:

Packing for Pesach.
Will more books fit in my bag?
Dayenu: enough!
