Latest Read: Its Hot In The Hamptons

I laugh at the idea of me buying a dozen books every time I travel to England or a destination with an English bookstore, but always end up checking out a book at a public library in San Francisco and reading it before I touch any of the ones I hauled across the pond and beyond.

With that said, I cannot put the novel – It’s Hot In the Hamptons – down. It has me laughing so hard, and kind of annoying actually to those that are around me. You know what I am talking about, when someone snickers to themselves or their shoulders jiggled while they silently laugh, that kind. That’s what I am doing.

I figured I’d share a day or two in the life of this author – who’s kept quiet for a while, too busy working with editors and publishers and all things novel-writing. But don’t fret, I will have updates for you shortly.  In the meantime, happy reading, whatever it is your heart desires and do share.

Holiday Gifts For The Book Lover

A few days ago, I walked into a Blackstone Bookstore in a small town in England – which shall remain nameless for now – since I am here doing research for another story – and I have to say, I was caught completely off guard by the amount of foot traffic the store receives. At first I thought it was because of the rain outside and/or the cafe upstairs, but when I stayed about an hour to observe and appreciate the volume of books categorized so perfectly throughout the store, I realized, people were actually there buying paperbacks or hardbacks.  It is definitely due to the holiday shopping, you might say, but after speaking to the clerks behind the check out counter, I was told  the store was busy most of the time and very busy over the weekends.  Oh what joy I felt.
