Went to Seattle this weekend to visit a very close friend who moved there from AZ last year. Seattle is far, far too cold for me but the literary community is amazing! We always go to Elliot Bay and Left Bank books. Here is my haul from the weekend. Running Secrets takes place on Alki Beach where my friend lives! And I bought Nevada from the bookseller who's 'staff pick' it was. Very successful book purchases in my mind.
