Looking for a cool-sounding reason not to do anything listed on a New Year's Eve Bash Roundup this Friday night? May we present to you The Stay Home and Read a Book Ball. Hosted by writer Walter Mosley and the Los Angeles Central Library, the event invites guests to ring in 2011 by—you guessed it—staying home and reading a book. Oh, and by supporting the library’s programs with a donation. Click "Make Reservation" here to "attend."
