This is why you need the large suitcase when you come to the Poisoned Pen Conference.

  1. Have you read any of the books by Jess Walter, Spokane area author? He is getting great press lately and my SIL really likes his stories. Since she is a past school librarian and has worked in her local libraries, I listen to her recommendations. Hope you will like him too!


  2. I always figure if a book I loaned out doesn’t come home to me, someone must have needed it or loved it more than me- and I usually also pick up another copy for me it to read and eventually give away again. I bet I’ve had multiple copues of Shogun, Jane Eyre, Lorna Doone, and more. Maybe it’s the best gift we can give. I love the inscription!


  3. Now I’m seriously jealous. I’ve got dibs on the Rollins! And the Barron. I’ll change my name, if I have to! I’m giving you fair warning in case Canada ever decides to invade Alaska, because I know exactly whose house I’m ransacking.


  4. I hate it when my books disappear. I still can’t remember who I loaned The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie to. Part of me wants to get everything cataloged and start doing loan slips or something…but I think that’s maybe going a bit far.


  5. When you are always moving (military brat, vet, ex-spouse), you quickly learn that what the movers take away is not always going to show up at your new location. Plus books weigh a LOT, so they are one of the first things to be given away when you get orders, which is why I am thrilled to have Ebooks as an alternative. Unfortunately, many of my favorite oldies have not been republished in e-format. When Kate’s cabin was burnt and she talked about all the books she had lost, then searching to find replacements… I know exactly how she felt. Even though I save many of my books, I figure that I will end up replacing it somewhere down the road.
