Philly Finds

The City of Brotherly Love was full of great food, great friends, great sites, and great books (of course). The presentation and poster session went well, I caught up with a great group of girls, got a year’s supply of pens and trinkets, had wonderful food, climbed the ‘Rocky’ steps to the art museum, and heard an excellent big band.

At the Book Corner I pulled a great haul, 5 VMCs. And who can’t feel good about buying from a place that supports local libraries and community programs.

      Lucky you! One fine day is one of my favourite Viragos. I would love to read The living is easy having read The wedding recently. I loved the Land of Spices. The sea-grape tree was a little weird and I don’t know anything about the Molly Keane. Enjoy.

      Sounds like a great trip and hooray for Viragoes! I have three of those but have yet to read any…

      Verity, I’ve heard that One Fine Day is a good read and since it’s one of your favorites, I think it’ll get bumped to the top of tbr

      Claire, I’m amazed that I found so many-and all from the same shop!
