I hope your holiday gift-giving included some books, and if you're still looking, here are the best coffee-table books I've seen in the past month of so. These are the sort of photo- and graphic-rich editions that look great in a living room -- and that overwhelm Kindles or other e-readers. Some favorites: -- "History's Greatest Images" by TIME, is billed as a compilation of "the World's 100 Most Influential Photographs. " The classics are all there: the flag-raising at Iwo Jima, Babe Ruth, JFK, school desegregation, the World Trade Center.

"A gentleman called me and said he was an autograph dealer," Wood says over the phone from her home near Los Angeles. "He wanted to be upfront with me - he said that it had come to his attention that I respond to fan letters and had been sending out photos. …He said, 'Do you realize that these people turn around and sell them?

When producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman bought the rights to Ian Fleming's James Bond novels and were planning for the first in what was to become the most popular film series in history, their wish list of actors to play the British superagent 007 included the 58-year-old Cary Grant and the 52-year-old David Niven.The producers figured that whatever Grant and Niven gave up in physical power and agility, they more than made up for in wit and sophistication. If they couldn't have it all, -- would have to do.James Bond, perhaps the most sublime creation in Cold War fiction, was a matchless fantasy hero for Fleming's mostly male readers.

Baltimore native Pam Shriver has been a Hall of Fame professional tennis player and an advocate for her hometown for more than half her 48 years. But Wednesday night at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, she will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her Tennis Challenge, which has raised millions for children's charities, and then close the door on that chapter of her successful life. What does her future hold? Can everyone say "Mommy"? When you talk to her now, she is usually sitting in a carpool line, helping with homework, making plans for participating at her kids' classroom activities or signing up for parent education courses -- how to interest your kids in reading, how to deal with children when they are angry.

Pam Shriver is driving down the highway in full Southern California mode -- meaning she is on her cell phone -- trying to recall the night her fiance proposed to her in a little French bistro in Santa Monica. "Let's see, it was (over) something meaty, beef, I think," she says. "Boeuf Bourguignon," her fiance can be heard prompting her. "And we had red wine," Shriver continues. "Chateauneuf-du-Pape," he chimes in. Hold the phone, Miss Moneypenny, but I'll be snookered if that gentleman with the discriminating tastes and the foreign accent talking in the background doesn't sound like Bond.

The atmosphere in the Harbor Court ballroom crackled with excitement. It might have been all the celebrity-signed sports memorabilia up for grabs at the Chevy Chase Bank Tennis Challenge's player-welcome reception and silent auction. Maybe all the sports celebrities themselves mingling in the crowd, celebs like tennis stars Zina Garrison, Jana Novotna, Richey Reneberg and Tim Wilkison, former Baltimore Colt Toni Linhart, and Philadelphia Eagle Sean Landeta. Perhaps it was anticipation for the next night's tennis tournament featuring Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick (see Around Town)

Several good movies on tonight, for those of you not Olympic-minded."A League of Their Own" (8: 30 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) Until this movie was released in 1992, a lot of people never knew there was such a thing as women's professional baseball, an invention of Philip K. Wrigley spurred by the lack of available male players during World War II. Geena Davis and Lori Petty are sisters who end up on rival teams, Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell are among...

Now we know we're hitting the big time: James Bond has been seen on the streets of Baltimore and will be stationed here for at least another few weeks. British actor Daniel Craig, set to be introduced as the next 007 at a London news conference today, has been in Baltimore since late last month. He's playing opposite Nicole Kidman in The Visiting, a film about invading aliens - it'll be the fourth screen adaptation of Jack Finney's 1955 novel, Invasion of the Body Snatchers - that is largely being filmed here and in Washington.
