A Few More Things (a bunch of reviews are coming next)

Before I give you some reviews - Dismal Mountain by John Billheimer, Still Alice by Lisa Genova, and Pure & Sinful (yes, that's the title) by Killian McRae -  I first want to wrap up some loose ends.  Of course, each one is important.  But these are the last of the miscellaneous goings-on (awkward wording).

Here they are:

1.  Casandra Lee, author and illustrator of the children's book, The Sun Dance, was at Recycle this past Sunday, sharing a table with yours truly.  She sold 12 books!  We've had a lot of authors sell their books out in front of Recycle on a Sunday morning (with the Farmer's Market going on), but Casandra takes the top prize for the number of books sold (not counting Julie Dart, who actually had a book launch at the store).

2.  Independent Bookstore Day at Recycle Books went well last Saturday.  All of the authors that signed up to spend an hour or two at the store did just that.  Thanks to the whole group.  We appreciate your support of independent bookstores.  Here they are again.

11:00-1:00 - Betty Auchard
                     Christine Z. Mason
1:00-2:00   - Nicci Carerra
                     Kate Allure
                     Joy Brighton
1:30-3:30   - Jenn Castro
3:00-4:00   - Steve Sporleder
4:00-5:00   - C. Lee McKenzie
                     A.R. Silverberry (Peter Adler)

3.  A couple of Sundays ago, I had my best "selling" day since I started recommending books at Recycle.  I sold 9 books (plus one of our RBC books)!

This Is Where I Leave You - Jonathan Tropper
My Losing Season - Pat Conroy
South of Broad - Pat Conroy
Missing You - Harlan Coben
The Footprints of God - Greg Iles
Third Degree - Greg Iles
Lonesome Dove - Larry McMurtry
Child 44 - Tom Rob Smith
The Sisterhood - Helen Bryan
(and Dismal Mountain - John Billheimer

Stay tuned for some reviews (how excited are all of you?).


  1. I missed Indie Bookstore Day because I had to work. I try to support my local indie every day, though, so I don't feel too bad.

  2. I think us bloggers do more than most to support independent bookstores as well as indie authors.
