Last night was a great experience. Murder by the Book is a well lit and organized and friendly place. I had a warm welcome there, with a great reading area full of waiting readers. John had met me first at the airport, and then to give me a lift to my reading. As I often find with bookstores, he was exceptionally knowledgeable about the books, and not just within the genre. So I had a great evening, and then a nice dinner with friends afterward at Houston’s Hobbit Cafe. It was another friendly and welcoming place, and the good food definitely came in Hobbit size portions.
Tonight I’ll be at Bookpeople in Austin! Looking forward to it!
