Always loved that Phoenix Books (a used books store) and I both came into being in 1975. Today's purchases: STAGECOACH DAYS IN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY and, for my son, MOUNTAINS OF FIRE: San Luis Obispo County's Nine Sisters -- A Chain of Ancient Volcanic Peaks.
The Ashers--me, my wife, sister-in-law, dad, brother, mom--at my cousin's wedding! (I'm still 10 days older, Sondra.)
Out in paperback today! I absolutely adored SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS by Darcy Woods. (I may have even swooned.) Here's the quote I gave for its cover: ""Whether or not you believe in fate or reading the stars, if you believe in happiness and love to laugh, read Summer of Supernovas."
