You are so lucky! Wish I could have been there.

Virtue is rewarded! While cleaning up my horrendously higgledy-piggledy bookshelves (to make room for more arrivals- when will I learn to resist the lure of online auctions?), I discovered the copy of Diana Norman's Shore of Darkness for which i've been searching for months :)

Does anyone else have poltergeist books? I'll see a book in one spot on my shelves but next time I look it will have relocated itself. The secret life of books ---

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

poltergeist books! That's an apt description. Unless I glue a book to my hand and read it straight through, I have a hard time figuring out where I put it. That's why I'm usually reading three or four books at a time.

Every Friday someone is supposed to bring in goodies, and today was my turn. I slaved all evening last night, making these little bite-sized apple pies. And they were a hit! :)

Went to ALA (DC is the host city this year) over the weekend. Got to see some folks I hadn't seen in awhile!
I enjoyed free wine on the exhibits floor...

Oh, wow. It's beautiful, Sonja! Lady Jane etched in glass?

Best thing today: It was warm. Blessedly warm, in the 70s. After days of nothing but wind and fog, I was beginning to despair summer would ever arrive, even if it is San Francisco.
