1. My Goodreads friend (and tennis buddy), Pat, sent me a link to an article that his friend, Marsha Enright, wrote about James Clavell. Some of you may know that Shogun is in my top 3 all-time. Plus, I read, and liked, all of his other books, too. Marsha's article is a review of each of Clavell's books along with some background info on the author himself. Compelling stuff.

3. Nicole Hughes, one of Kepler's main event planners, is moving out of the area in a couple of months. So the store is posting a job vacancy for Nicole's position. I can't seem to drag the link over here. So google "kepler's jobs." The 1st link that comes up is "Employment/Kepler's Books." Click on that, and it goes right to the job description. Sorry for the 2-step.
MOVIE NEWS: Did I mention that Me Before You is being made into a movie? I think I did (but the memory is not stellar!). Well, I just saw a date. It's coming out next June! And the 2 stars are (I probably already told you this, too) Sam Claflin (Hunger Games) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones). Can't wait! The last movie I saw that was based on a book that I had recently read was This Is Where I Leave You. I loved the book and the movie. Can Lightning strike twice? We'll find out next June.
