Things have been quiet around here, and with good reason. I recently completed a cross-country move from our beloved Monterey to the Washington DC area. Yes, sadly I had to close my bookshop. But unlike other stories of bookstore closings, this was not a sad tale of diminishing readers and sales, the woes of Amazon, etc. In my case, it’s much more mundane: My wife got a new job, and so we needed to move.

Needless to say, the business has moved with me (and THAT is a blog post all by itself), but I will be working out of the house for the foreseeable future. I have much I want to write about my three years running my shop in Monterey and what I learned doing it. And more still about the book scene here in the nation’s capital.

But for now, this is just a note to say that I am still alive and that postings here will resume again shortly — and are likely to be more frequent now that I won’t have a shop to worry about. So stay tuned…And thanks for your patience.
