A popular bookstore chain has found a new home at Fashion Island. Barnes & Noble is leaving its store near Edwards Island Theater and moving into a much larger space in the shopping center's Atrium Court. The move will triple the size of the bookstore and create more space to sell DVDs, CDs and lattes. "We've been in Fashion Island since 1993, and we've been looking to expand ? for quite some time," Manager Natalie Basmaciyan said. The chain's store model includes the new music and movies section, as well as an in-store cafe.

Students bedecked themselves in St. Patrick's Day regalia, teachers came in festive attire and parents stayed warm and dry in Adams Elementary School's multipurpose room Friday as it sprinkled outside. The students were in for a surprise, but it wasn't the candy they thought they were getting. Instead the Mesa Verde-area school received a leprechaun's pot of gold in the form of nearly $7,500 for new books. "What that means is [Principal Gabe Del Real] and your fine librarian are going to go to Barnes & Noble and shop till they drop to give you lots of books, so you can read day and night," Charles Mariano, the vice president and manager of City National Bank's Costa Mesa branch told the students during flag deck.

COSTA MESA — Kimberly Henry, the library clerk at Rea Elementary School, has had to make do for the last three years without a budget for updating her bookshelves. That shouldn't be a problem anymore. On Wednesday morning, the school in Costa Mesa received nearly $12,000 in books and monetary donations to replenish its library. The Fashion Island Barnes & Noble branch gave the school 780 books the store has collected through new book donations from customers, along with a matching cash donation of $5,666 from City National Bank — nearly double the amount school officials had anticipated.

When I was 12, I got a copy of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bookends" album and found myself transfixed by the bridge of the song "Old Friends. " The lyrics, sung in a fragile tenor by Art Garfunkel, declare, "Can you imagine us years from today, sharing a park bench quietly? How terribly strange to be 70. " Seventy seemed terribly strange then, and now that I am 34, it still does — as does 35, 40 and every other age in between. Perhaps I live in a constant state of denial; perhaps many of us do. We are surrounded by people further on the path of life and know that we'll someday catch up to them, but how easy is it to imagine our own hair grayer, our own face more lined and our head filled with decades more knowledge?

The Newport Beach and Corona del Mar landscape keeps transforming, but into what? The Mayans always assumed that everything happened in circles, and their calendar reflected that assumption, that what happened before will happen again. I am starting to think the same way. I hope that in the not too distant future, we will enjoy a local stationery store, a book store and other small businesses where the owners will be at the counters to share with customers knowledge of their inventories — you will know them, and they will know you. You know, the kind of shops we saw in the 1950s and 1960s, before they were massacred by corporations like Staples and Barnes & Noble.

For first-time novelist A.G.S. Johnson, inspiration struck like lightning and immediately slowed to a crawl. "I was awakened one night, maybe 15 years ago, by this cocky female voice that was so intriguing to me that I jumped out of bed, literally, and I wrote as fast as I could," Johnson said, talking about the would-be foundation for her debut novel. "It was a couple of paragraphs of what this voice was saying … So I carried this stupid piece of writing around for probably a few years.

COSTA MESA — Sitting in on a second-grade class trying out the xylophone might make one reach for Advil, but not that's not the case in Suzanne Rivera's class at Paularino Elementary School. With six students poised in front of different sized xylophones, and the rest sitting "criss-cross apple sauce, pepperoni pizza sauce," Rivera challenged them to use their creativity and create their own tunes on the first try. "I want you to think of your own melody," Rivera told her students.

Jonathan Adler says he has a missionary's zeal for great design, and perhaps to that end, the New York-based ceramicist and decorator is coming to Southern California to preach. Adler will appear Nov. 8 at Barnes & Noble in Santa Monica and Nov. 9 at Barnes & Noble in Newport Beach to celebrate the launch of two books: "Happy Chic: Colors" and "Happy Chic: Accessorizing. " Adler wrote them simultaneously, a process that he describes as "agonizing but with a great payoff, like childbirth," and says that he'll add to the series in the coming years.
