    I got a shipment notification today from the fine people at Cemetery Dance. Two days ago I found a fiction book about a hotel that I wanted immediately. I order the novel yesterday. I stumbled upon a cool article about hotel novels. There are 5 novels and I want each one. I already have read and totally enjoyed The Sun Down Motel. That novel made the list. When life gives you lemons and tries to make you a sourpuss make the most of it and make lemonade. I am okay just not really a happy camper lately.

    I try to grab a bookmark from any of the stores I stop by. I missed a few that I feel bad about, especially a store called Novel Futures that specialized in Science Fiction and Mysteries. They got crushed by Barnes and Noble when they came to town.

    A bittersweet archive. Nice that the stores' history lives on in some small way...wish I'd done something like that with all the stores I've seen come and go in the last three, four decades.

    Great minds think alike.

    Finally added a fancy copy of Dweller by Jeff Strand to my collection. Probably, most likely, my favorite Jeff Strand novel.

    Sock Monkey I've had a similar experience on ABE. I know the feeling of missing a book and also the reaction from a wife. No shoulder to cry on in my house regarding books.
