As for the store itself, very small, no cafe, but very warm and welcoming. And as with all my other indie visits, there are always great people like Emily to talk to about books. Her recommendation to me was Five Days At Memorial, by Sheri Fink. Story about a hospital in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. It really sounds like a great book. As with many others, it patiently awaits its turn to be read. I also bought The Astral, by Kate Christensen. Kate is the author who wrote the essay about WORD for My Bookstore. I took it as a sign when I walked by The Astral, a large oldish and rose colored apartment building, on my way to WORD. As always, go to an indie and buy a book. Bonsoir!
CURRENTLY READING: The Fall of Giants, Ken Follett. I really like Follett so think this will be good. But it's a big boy, would make a great doorstop. For a vault door at a bank!
JUST FINISHED: Turtle Diary, Russell Hoban. For me it was good, not great. Liked the story but too many tangents. 2.5 stars.
