Wednesday AKA Hump Day

Hi there everyone.  I just got back from book club.  Sheila Roberts was delightful as usual.  She encouraged every woman who's ever been on a diet to buy or get from the library her new book "Bikini Season."  I took my copy and she autographed it for me.  She was telling us that it's flying off the shelves and is now in it's second printing.  Her next book comes out next spring and it's entitled "Love in Bloom." In her early days, Sheila wrote under the name of Sheila Rabe.

Next month we won't be having a visiting author because it will fall on the 2nd of July and a lot of people will be away that week because of the 4th of July holiday.   In October, Debbie Macomber will be our special guest. We all love Debbie...she's so down to earth & a great author of books for women.

I don't think she'll mind if I tell you.....I got a text message from our dear friend Robin (The Yellow Brick Road) this afternoon.  She had surgery this morning...she said that she was ok, the surgery went well and that she would go home tomorrow. This text message came in at 11:40am Pacific Daylight time so it would have been 3 hours later... that would have been 2:40pm there in Florida.  I'm sure she'll back on line in a few days.  Best wishes to Robin for a speedy recovery.

It's another cool, windy day here in western Washington today.  The temp finally reached 60* but with the breeze we're having it doesn't feel that warm.  I actually had to turn the furnace up for awhile this morning.  

Well, that's all folks...have a good evening.   Linda

It's great to meet authors that you like. I used to love to do that in Manhattan at book signings so many years ago. I'll have to look for her book. Wish you could send some cool weather our way...it's been 91/92 all week and high humidity...my Joey got out of town just in time to beat the heat.  love, Sandi

I wish it was only 60.  It was 92 today!  I've never read Sheila and only one of Debbie's.

Sounds like the book club was fun. I knew that Robin was having surgery. but I  didn't know the reason. Good to hear everything's okay.

Sounds like the Book Club really brings a lot of joy to you, wish they had something like that here in Toronto.  I will be coming to Oregon in July and my friend and I will be travelling to Seattle then taking the ferry to Victoria, B.C.  
If possible, it would be wonderful if we could meet.  I will send you an email about the details.
