So Joey of Joeyfully Stated hooked me up with a new obsession: The Skipah’s Realm blog. Like I needed another time-eating source of endless delight.
The Skipah lives in Madison, Indiana, a place I love but have never actually visited. I’ve been there many times to sell books at That Book Place (now, alas, no more, but news at the end of the post!). That Book Place is “up on the hill,” away from the fancy-schmancy Madisony stuff downtown. We’ve often discussed eating at one of the recommended downtown eateries, but 88 King Buffet is also up on the hill. ‘Nuff said.
ANYWAY, Skipah’s Realm rocks. Take a gander at this post about bears, dogs, cherry vodka, and Jimmy Buffet. You’re welcome.
Passive Guy over at The Passive Voice finds and comments on a wide range of subjects, all of which interest me. Maybe they’ll interest you, too.
One of the articles he quoted and commented on led me to The Deseret News, which appears to be a Mormon (LDS) publication, specifically to this three-page article on prescribing specific books to alleviate specific maladies.
So OF COURSE I had to find the website for the book the article mentioned, THE NOVEL CURE. Puttin’ that puppy on my Wish List, yo.
If you aren’t following the How-To Geek yet, why not? He posted a most useful article this week on How To Take Better Pictures With Your Phone’s Camera. Since I take snappies with my phone, like, ALL the TIME, I loved it!
NOW THE BIG NEWS! Frank Hall, who owned The Book Box in Madison, Indiana sold it about a year ago and he and everybody who loved the store have regretted it ever since. So this weekend, Frank and the amazing Tony Acree and the lovely Lynn Tincher BOUGHTEN Karen’s Book Barn in LaGrange, Kentucky! Shiny!
