Bookstore Run

Posted by Mike on April 29, 2006

Did the downtown end of the Sacramento bookstore run yesterday, Time Tested, Beers, and The Book Collector, and then swung back to hit the Trent's Bookworm at Madison and Kenneth. I love Sacramento springs, but this year it seems to have gone missing, as it was a surprisingly summerish day. I finished the next story in Silverberg's _Roma Eterna_ sequence, "Waiting for the End," which was very nice and am currently finding it hard to move my eyes from Edward Whittemore's Quin's Shanghai Circus.
