Good News Patrol: Now in 4 Vermont Bookstores!
BUY LOCAL is big in Vermont. Booksellers are All In to promote local authors, way more than other places. Huge thanks to:
• Royal Towne Gifts (Randolph)
• Yankee Bookshop (Woodstock)
• Bear Pond Books (Montpelier)
• Barnes & Noble (Burlington)
Today’s high point: goddess Teresa at B&N putting my very orange book on both the Graduation and Local shelves. 🥰 Highest point: seeing “Signed Edition” stickers being applied by Goddess to humble tome.
Then my nephew’s last-place baseball team beat the first-place team. Can it be?!
But enough about us. Do comment with your own Good News. So needed! ❤️
There’s Just Something About a Spool
From slender filaments to giant cables, spools get the job done right. The big daddy on the left appeared down the road a piece. It made my day.
My sister-in-law, an extremely talented fiber artist, has dozens of spools. I have a lowly 30. If you’ve never wound a bobbin on a sewing machine before, you’re missing out. If mankind wound more bobbins, there’d be less misery and lower crime rates.
This place, El Taller (“The Studio”), in Lawrence, MA is a cool coffee shop with books and…spools. They write in your coffee. What’s better than that?
