Talk tomorrow,



  1. Bookends is very close to where I live 🙂 I may have to stop in! I wonder if Dan lives in this area, too. How cool to see a bookstore I know 😀


  2. Donna, me too. I live in Ridgewood. Where are you?

    Jack Gantos is my new favorite author and I worked with Lane Smith years ago, but I bet the store will be mobbed.


    • Emerson…do you ever go to the Paramus Barnes? It’s my haunt! lol


      • No kidding, me too.


      • Mary, I used to practically LIVE there, nearly every day, anywhere from 4-10 or more hours! I wonder if we’ve ever been there at the same time and not known it. I’m barely going now ’cause it’s been a long time since I’ve gotten any work done while I’m there (it’s why I started going), because I know too many people and end up in too many conversations! lol
