About my libraryI'll read anything that sounds interesting and have a habit (some might say problem) of acquiring books faster than I can possibly read them. I look forward to finishing up some of the books I've already started and finally getting my hands on books that have been sitting unread on my shelves for far too long thanks to the 2014 Challenge, the 75 Challenge, and, most importantly, the ROOTs Challenge.

I'll mark my calendar for 11:30.

Not all the mysteries I've read are actual books. Some are on Kindle.

I just finished Dead Lil' Hustler, one of those Wisconsin Northwoods mysteries by Victoria Houston. That's an actual book.
11:30? Or is that too early?

If you exit 94, there's a sort of a shopping mall with all kinds of restaurants and stores to the left. It seems to me it's a few blocks down.

I'll bring whatever mysteries I've accumulated and will be on the lookout for Texas Roadhouse coupons.
Aug 30th sounds good to me. Where do you want to go? Would coming down to Kenosha (highway 50) be ok? I'm always getting coupons for the Texas Roadhouse, which is just a block or two north of 50/94, near the Woodman's Grocery Store (not sure of the store's name).

Somewhere else perhaps?
OOh, if you really are willing, I'd love the Mark Billingham and the Invention of Wings by Kidd. If you sent them to my parents place (that is, NOT Germany), I could read them on the beach this summer. But not if anyone else wants them or you don't want to go to the trouble.
Happy Thingaversary, Laura! Sending hugs
