Time to pay those library fines

I check out books en masse. Yes, I'm that guy who schleps twenty books to the counter. What can I say? I like to read a gaggle of books at a time (especially for research). And I've been known to hang onto a book or two (or ten) way beyond the normal return date. Which is a polite way of saying I've ended up buying several books from the library rather than return them. But I always pay my fines. I consider it a badge of honor.

Speaking of honors, SONGS OF WILLOW FROST was recently named to LibraryReads inaugural Top-10 list of books recommended by librarians all across the country. The complete list is here. 

It's huge honor, one I hold in high regard, particularly because I hold librarians in high regard (after all, Batgirl was a librarian). And if you haven't seen this great librarians ala Beastie Boys video, behold:

Jamie, what are the chances you could squeeze in a visit to Camarillo Public Library if we were to choose your new book for our One City One Book read in March 2014? One quarter of the way through it and loving it!


PS Camarillo is half way between LA and Santa Barbara - beautiful 65,000 square foot community jewel complete with a half sunken pirate ship.
