Indies First Storytime #indiesfirst

So.  I was checking out IndieBound.org to see if I could find a totally rad indie bookstore to visit while in Houston for an upcoming trip (I'm still open to suggestions by the way), when I saw that Indies First Storytime is being held across the country on May 17th:


You can locate your local storytime on their website.  So I checked into it.

Just so happens that the ever-so-better-than-expected (and local!) Tom Leveen (Sick, Party, Zero, manicpixydreamgirl, Random) is doing one at Changing Hands on May 15th at 10:15AM and that Molly Idle (author of my very very fave kids book Tea Rex) is doing one on the 17th at 10AM.

I think we'll try to hit up both.  Because there's no such thing as too many stories. And there's definitely no such thing as too much time spent in an Indie bookstore.  Am I right?  Will we see you there?

Divergent Is Coming!


Yeah yeah yeah, I'm not screaming at the top of my lungs about Divergent coming to theaters near you.  That's like such old news!  I'm screaming to let you know that Divergent events are coming to MESA.

#1.  March 14th.  Bookmans Mesa.  Come.  Find out where you belong.  Are you Erudite?  Abnegation?  Find out if you have what it takes to be Candor or Amity.  Dauntless?  It's fun.  It's free.  I'll totally be there doing the thing for either Erudite or Candor (not sure which yet) and I'd love to see you.   6:30.  Divergent Movie Release Party. Be there.

#2.  Young at ♥.  Also in conjunction with Bookmans Mesa.  We're going to stand in line at the movie theater and have our Young at ♥ group there while we wait.  8pm showing.  Show up at our normal book group time of 7pm.  AMC Mesa Grand theater. US60/Stapley.  Buy your tix here.  They're $11.  March 20. 8pm.  Email me, Tweet me, Facebook me, Google Plus me, let me know you're coming so we can save your spot in line.  

Now that those are covered.  I haven't been able to bring myself to finish Allegiant.  I'm 70% of the way done and could care less as to what happens next.  Someone cure me.  Fast.
