Books (and Brain) Browsing 

If you're looking for a cheap date, there's nothing better than a book fair. Admission is usually free, and you and your friend can wander the aisles looking for old favorites and new surprises at bargain prices. The secret benefit though is that you get to psychoanalyze each other based on what you're both buying. Why is he looking at a book of baby names? Why does she keep picking up true crime novels? Which one of you is going to win the struggle for a Stan Mikita biography? Have fun book shopping and psyche-scoping at the 35th Annual YMCA Bookfair, which takes place at the Kennedy Recreation Center (6050 Wells Road; 314-615-5572 or The fair is open 4 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday through Wednesday (August 16 through 21). Admission is $10 on opening night and free all other days.
