Libyans Head To The Polls: Saturday was the first election in Libya since Moammar Gadhafi seized power in 1969. This is the people of Libya's first opportunity to guide their own politics — and the world is waiting to see what direction they want to go. What will be the political results of the civil war?

Nancy Pearl On Books That Shaped America: In honor of the holiday just passed, you and Nancy Pearl will consider a list of books that shaped America. Help us compile it. The Bible would have to be on it. So would Thomas Paine's "Common Sense." How about "Huckleberry Finn"? What other books shaped America? Call 206.543.5869, email us or post on our Facebook page.
