Food and style: D.C. area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Took a day off to take care of some other stuff, but back today with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. Today's mix includes some useful tips (fashion and recycling), a how-to on getting free e-books and a fond farewell.

Free books! If you received one of those handy e-readers as a gift his holiday season, officials at Arlington Public Library have a program for you. They’re offering a free session on how to borrow e-books from Arlington libraries. has details.

A handy tip from DC Recycler: If you’ve got an old computer you’re looking to get rid of, don’t take it to the junk yard. Instead – if it’s a Pentium III class processor or better – consider donating it to Project Reboot in Rockville. Project Reboot cleans/fixes the computers and then sells them to nonprofits for $10.

Clarendon Culture offers this handy chart of what’s in and out in D.C. dining.

A fond farewell and a thank you to Amanda Bensen, one of my favorite bloggers at the Smithsonian’s Food & Think blog. She wrote some of my favorite posts in 2010, including answering the question: Why are chocolate Easter bunnies hollow? She’s off to another magazine gig. You can still follow her on her personal blog, The Editor Eats.

With the inauguration of the 112th Congress this week, there will be a fair number of new faces on the Hill. Capitol Hill Style offers some tips to new staffers on how to survive and thrive on The Hill.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and keep those suggestions for great D.C. area blogs coming. My blog collection is well over 300 now and it's been fun to read and highlight all the great work that's being done in the area. Every day, I feel like I learn something new.
