Book reviews from the staff at the Alameda Free Library. Check out their favorite books and thoughts about literature from a variety of genres.
The Education Report was born in June 2007. Ever since, people have been using it to dish, vent, debate, and muse about their experiences and impressions of Oakland’s schools. I’m always open to tips — blog ideas, especially.

I'm an Alameda native with a deep appreciation for the joys of gardening in sandy soil and a Mediterranean climate. This is where I share my gardening successes and frustrations (of which there are many), as well as news of gardening events and developments in and around the San Francisco Bay Area.
VinDivine, what to drink, where to eat, what to buy and an all-around how-to guide for going through life, having a blast!
VinDivine is a blog dedicated to food, wine, travel, gadgets and things to do, from San Francisco to New York City and beyond!
My name is Sally (if that wasn’t obvious already) and I want to thank you for following me as I tour around looking for fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m going to be exploring the Bay – uncovering hidden gems as I go – and using this blog to document my experience.
I have so much fun bopping around from restaurants in the Bay Area to funky shops and boutiques that I decided it would be selfish of me NOT to share all of my experiences with the world.
Whether you’re a bored local or are planning on visiting San Francisco, my goal is for you to discover something new, fun and maybe even thought provoking to do in the Bay Area through this collection of blog posts.
Please note that I live in Marin County so I may be a little biased toward things to do in Marin and I’ll probably focus on more things to do in Marin County than anywhere else in the Bay. However, I promise I will be adventurous as I sally across the bridges and step over the county line on a regular basis. Knowing I have to document lots of lesser known fun things to do in the Bay Area will force me to try new things and get out of my comfort zone.

All City is all about photography – specifically San Francisco urban photography – with an occasional photo from other parts of the earth (and someday beyond!). But what truly binds us together is San Francisco proper and its many personalities, from tourist kitsch to ocean beaches, soaring skylines to urban decay.
We hope that you will join us — and our friends — as we travel around the city and shed light on its many corners.
