Shirley Deane — entertainer, world traveler, world changer
I got to meet Shirley Deane! Who is Shirley Deane? — you ask. I didn't know until a couple of years ago. Her book,  An Unreasonable Woman : In Search of Meaning Around the Globe , sat on a shelf in my bookshop for at least a year. The title was intriguing, ...

Happy Birthday, Gene Roddenberry!
One of the items in the Star Trek collection is an envelope of Gene Roddenberry's birth records. He would have been 95 years old today! These are copies printed around 2002 and signed by the county clerk of El Paso, Texas. The map shows the 1921 location of...

To Boldly Go — to the bookshop
Well, I certainly left you in suspense long enough. I started yet another part-time job in May and got sidetracked (no pun intended). I did, however, send out the bookshop newsletter to let subscribers in on the secret. (You can sign up here or on the right...

Born for This!
Only three more days 'til Chris Guillebeau's new book Born for This hits the stands! I signed up to be part of Chris' "street team" because I was so excited I didn't want to wait until the April 5 launch date. An advance copy arrived on my doorstep – litera...

Viva Las Vegas! — part 2
No trip to Vegas is complete without visiting "the Strip," with its mega-hotels and casinos with familiar names like Ceasar's Palace and the Luxor. I fell in love with the Paris. It was huge! like an indoor city. A half-size replica of the Eiffel tower stan...
