Forget love– I’d rather fall in chocolate!!!

So working this beautiful day, Saturday Oct 15, had its perks.  Right next to JMRL’s Central Library in Lee Park the 5th annual Chocolate Festival (sponsored by the First United Methodist Church) is going on.  My colleague and I took our lunch breaks over that way and enjoyed a sampling of flavored chocolates and viewed many a delicacy.

Beyond eating, chocolate is always a great subject for discussion, and JMRL has many titles in which Chocolate is featured that might add to your chocolate trivia or addiction.  To inundate yourself in bibliographic chocolate use it as the keyword in the keyword search mode.  You may also want to revisit the Librarian-in-waiting’s blog entry: “Nine out of ten people like chocolate. The tenth person always lies.” – John Q. Tullius

For chocolate eaters and chefs:  To get to the delectable recipes use “Cooking (Chocolate)” as the subject.  A couple of the most recent are below:
