Happy sleuthing.

You mentioned that you'd blogged, and it took me a while to remember your blog's address (I don't use bookmarks much -- keeps me sharp). Can I suggest that people buy the book at a local independent bookstore instead of a big chain? I think it's the same for Rachael's stats, and I know you'd be sad if the indies all disappeared.


Yes, indeed! I am very much in favor of the independent bookstores. I actually hadn't been to a chain in years... until I failed at three small bookstores in Berkeley. Berkeley doesn't sell ANYTHING new, books included.

By all means, readers, follow Kira's sage advice. Shop your local indie store- for coffee, for literature, for everything.


Awwwwwww. I love this post. How flattered am I that you liked it? YAY! xoxoxo Hope to see you sooner rather than later!
