* Lincolnites in need of some gift-giving ideas may want to consider swinging by the Bennett Martin Library at 14th and N, Wednesday at noon for Lunch at the Library. Held in the 4th Floor Auditorium, you’ll get to enjoy free coffee from The Mill and check out “Great Books to Give as Gifts.” The BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch) event is sponsored by the Nebraska Literary Heritage Association. For more information, contact 441.8516 or heritage@lincolnlibraries.org. * This Sunday, Dec. 5, the UNO chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America brings Santa Paws to The Bookworm at 87th and Pacific. Readers and animal lovers are encouraged to bring their furry friends and get their picture taken with Santa. The event runs from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Photos are $15, with all proceeds going to Hearts United for Animals (hua.org), a no-kill animal shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering. New pet supplies will also be accepted as donations. Monday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m. the I Should Have Read That in School classics discussion group will discuss Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. n Think your Tweets are hot stuff? Thirty-nine-thousand-plus people apparently do, as that’s how many the publishing blog GalleyCat estimates are on Sponsored Tweets, a program that allows you to make money from your 140-character bon mots of disposable wisdom. If you can’t think of anything brilliant to say, turn the Tweeting reins over to Khloe Kardashian, who, for a mere $2,941.25 per Tweet, will light up the Internet with insight (Kim’s available, but didn’t list her price). If you have deeper pockets and/or can’t get enough of the incredibly grating and painfully unfunny staple of those VH1 countdown shows, Michael Ian Black, go ahead and give him $5,882.50 for a Tweet or two.
