The Adult Department has just received the first of the 2008 updates of a series called Art/Shop/Eat. We have volumes on Paris and London, written by Delia Gray-Durant; a volume on Rome, by Daniel Nolan; and one on Barcelona, by Lucie Hayes. The books all follow a formula: first they list the top 10 things to do in each city, then the city gets divided into districts, and for each area, ideas are given in how to spend the day there. The main sights (and some quirky ones) are mentioned, along with the best places to eat or have a coffee, and the local shopping. These are great little guides, especially for those who are planning on just a short stay in a city.
