Click It. BEAT picks of the week.

On a rainy (or, in NY, snowy!) weekend, staying in and reading is the best thing to do.

Simon Doonan, of Barneys fame, just released his fifth book, Gay Men Don't Get Fat.

A few other books in my "queue": Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century, Then Again (Diane Keaton's memoir), and The Beautiful and Damned (with the fancy cover!).

If you're heading to the movies, I recommend Contraband.

Girls in New York City generally wear darker nail polish than L.A. ladies do ... I followed suit yesterday with a manicure of Essie's Devil's Advocate. My favorite pale polish is Adore-a-Ball, also by Essie.

If you like Lana Del Rey, despite her much-discussed sort of awkward SNL performances last week, you can pre-order her album Born to Die on Amazon, out January 31.

If you're making snacks for the football games today, read these essential guacamole tips from Rick Bayless.
