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.

After 3 years during which thousands of book givers distributed over a million and a half specially published paperbacks across America, sadly World Book Night is suspending operations due to lack of funding. I was fortunate to have participated in the event for the past two years.
I have done several posts about this program. If you aren't familiar with it, you can type World Book Night in the search box in the side bar of my blog to get a list of all those posts.
