About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

This just in:

The World Book Night organizers have chosen an honorary chairperson for this year's event. And the choice is--drum roll, please--comedian and actress Amy Poehler. Read the story here.

I am excitedly looking forward to April 23, when I will be giving away 20 copies of Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein up north in the small town of Reed City, Michigan. Thanks to my brother Dave for the use of his store, Chris's Country Dollar, as a home base. Dave also put me in touch with the local public library in Reed City, and they have agreed to help publicize the event. Can't wait.
