Now that Tom and Huck are back in school for much of the day, I had enough “free” hours today to take a drive over to visit my mentor, Mr. Z at his lovely shop. We enjoyed a nice lunch and talked about some books we hope to sell at the upcoming Santa Monica Book Fair. The weather here is lovely in September, so we dined at a cafe with outdoor seating. It was an enjoyable afternoon — good food, good weather, and good conversation with a fellow bookseller — and a fun way to use up my “work” hours for the day. Unfortunately, that means that the time I have available for blogging is short again. Back with a longer post tomorrow, I hope.
See you in the stacks!
