Books, Books…

And more books! Gotta have ’em!

What fun I had at Auntie’s Book Store last night. We met in the coffee shop, a diverse group of around a dozen people, and chatted informally. I do enjoy that so much–I’d finished a chapter of a book an hour before, and I thought I was tired, but there’s something about being in the company of other book fanatics that jazzes me plenty.

Now, whenever I do a book signing, I usually buy a lot more than I sell, and last night was no exception. I found treasures! “The Anatomy of Story”, by John Truby, and a book on writing memoirs by Natalie Goldberg. AND four of the Dover copyright-free clip art books, the kind with the CD in the back, for all my gloriously messy projects. Riches!

I especially like Auntie’s–Lois Hughes is always so nice to me and so thorough in her preparations–because it is an old-fashioned book store, the kind you don’t see so often anymore. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve never been in a book store I didn’t like, and I’m a regular customer at all the big chains, as well as Wal-Mart and Target, but the selection at Auntie’s is unusually eclectic and the ambience is great.

Speaking of books, I happen to be writing one. :) Better get right to work.

Though the term “stick ’em up” is widely used in Western films, it wasn’t actually coined until the 1930’s.
