With a shortened holiday season punctuated by weekend winter storms, holiday shoppers in Maryland are feeling the pressure. There are six fewer days this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas than last year. And three Baltimore-area snowfalls in three days the second week of December have distracted others from buying. "I've been in denial," said Ann DiAddezio, a York, Pa., restaurateur who was loaded down with shopping bags Saturday morning as she walked briskly past stores at Towson Town Center.

When Mary Martin was about 2 years old, her mother, also named Mary Martin, started a postcard business in the family's Albany, N.Y., home. Over the years, the mother instilled a love of postcards in her daughter. She taught the youngster everything she knew. By the time she was 6 years old, young Mary could hold her own with postcard dealers. "It was obvious early on that I had the collector's gene," she said. "I was fascinated with postcards, and collecting them became addictive." Martin remembers quickly learning to distinguish which postcards were good and which ones were bad. And she learned from the best, said Bill Martin, 65, her father.

Havre de Grace voters returned two experienced politicians to the City Council and selected a newcomer, all to serve two-year terms. A self-described "new face for Havre de Grace," Bill Martin, a 34-year-old teacher at Aberdeen Middle School, was elected to the council after weeks of going door to door to about 250 houses, introducing himself to the city's voters. After learning of the results Tuesday, Martin declared, "I love democracy." He credited his success to old-fashioned campaigning.

Picture books have the ability to make a story come to life. Some use calligraphy, as in Claude and Frederic Clement's "The Painter and the Wild Swans," which is adorned with Japanese lettering. Collage is used by illustrators Susan L. Roth in "Cinnamon's Day Out: A Gerbil Adventure."Chris Van Allsburg takes you where photographers and scientists fear to go in "Two Bad Ants," as it follows the ants on an adventure that lead them into a "boiling brown lake," which is actually a cup of coffee.

"I think 'Ghost Camp' by R.L. Stine is a fantastic book. The characters in the story are Alex, Bobby and Elvis. The problem is Alex and Bobby are trying to get away from Elvis and the other ghost. They solve this problem by running away from the camp and going to their house and never going back. I think this is a super and interesting book."-- Daniel HeacockElmwood Elementary" 'Amelia Bedelia' by Peggy Parish is very entertaining. Amelia is a maid who's confused most of the time. She was to dress the chicken for cooking, but instead she put clothes on the chicken.
