Do you always finish books you start reading? Discuss.

Do you give each book a certain number of pages to grab your attention? No set number of pages for me, just a couple of sessions of reading. Has it gotten easier or harder to just set a book aside as…Continue

Do you have any books to recommend from your summer reading?

Often the reading lightens up during the summer; sometimes people take the opportunity to tackle something they wouldn't usually.  How was your summer reading?  What treasures did you find? From meI…Continue

Not too long ago I finished a remarkable little book called "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly", by Jean-Dominique Bauby.  It is his own account of some the time he spent at the end of his life in a…Continue

Rebecca, sorry I can't attend the book crossing event Sat. Hope there will be another one. It's a great idea

I'm part of a panel discussion at B&N on the 22nd. It is in support of the William Jeanes Library. It's a 3 day bookfair hosted by B&N in support of the WJ Library. I thought this might be something we could do for the RP Library. I'll bring the info on the 25th.

Sorry Lou Anne, I did find that email! But what do you mean by support, and do you mean the Ridley Park or Ridley Twp library? And aren't there already Friends of the Library groups in existence for this purpose? I keep meaning to join one of these.
Comment by Lou Anne Bulik on April 18, 2010 at 9:15pm
That's a great idea, Michael.

Rebecca, I emailed people about getting together to discuss ways to support the library. I asked if a weeknight or a Saturday morning were better times to get together.

I think I missed something. What was Lou Anne's idea?
Comment by Nina on April 18, 2010 at 4:00pm
Hi Lou Anne-- great idea for the library. Don't know whether week night or Sat is best. For me it depends on other commitments, varying week to week. So I would just try to attend whatever you decide.

Hi Lou Ann,
I got your note about supporting the library. A weeknight sounds better this time of year, too many activities going on Saturday mornings. Let me know if I can participate in some way. A discussion on publishing or fiction writing, maybe tie it to a book signing? I'm open for suggestions.
Mike

That would be great, Rebecca. It would be nice if we could get a few other authors doing this too. The coffee house is a great venue for a book signing.

Michael, be sure to let us know any booksignings at the Cafe. I'll try to get together some BookCrossers for the event!

Hi Nina,
Thanks so much for the kind words! The book is with the publisher now, off to editing, so if all goes well they tell me a late summer/early fall release. I'm excited because B&N in Plymouth Meeting has offered to host the book release event. I'm also looking forward to having a book signing here in Ridley Park for the new book, I really enjoyed the one we did for the first book. I've started the third book in the series, that should keep me busy for a while. I'll keep you posted.
