I just released this story and it hit #1 New Release on amazon in the 30-Minute Teen & Young Adult Short Reads category! It is #28 overall on the Amazon Best Sellers page for this category! I can't describe how excited I am to create something that people are engaging with. If you want to get a copy it's only $0.99. Here's a link https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WJL8TR3

Didn't want it to end. I look forward to the movie that certainly will be in the works. (And proud to say I bought it at Provincetown's East End Books.) #getindie

Old Firehouse | Kenneth B Hogan

We‘re visiting our Colorado family over the holiday and finally got to check out #OldFirehouseBooks in Fort Collins today! How cool is this building?? We loved the shop so much we checked out 3 times (oops). 😆💸 My favorite part, though, was when my 6 year old said, “I‘m just gonna check out some more of these Eric Carle books.”

On the East side of Central Park at 58th & 5th, the iconic Strand Book Store has set up a kiosk. There, I purchased a quintessentially NYC story, this time re-told in gn form: It‘s an über-meta detective story where the protagonist goes a bit insane as the case goes on. I can‘t say that I really understood it 100% but it will be worth the time to re-read it more thoroughly. B&W panels - Amazing composition.

I picked up Pegasus for Man Cub because he‘s interested in mythology at the moment and $4 isn‘t bad. If you have any suggestions beyond Rick Roardin for mythology books or series (it doesn‘t have to be Greek myth it can be any kind) I would welcome them.

Itchyfeetreader One of my friends daughters is into myths and I was sent the attached for Christmas gift ideas https://www.commonsensemedia.org/lists/best-mythology-books-for-kids-and-teens I went with the Alchemyst which she enjoyed (edited) 2y
OrangeMooseReads @Itchyfeetreader thank you. I will take a look at that. 👍🏼 2y

We‘re about to enter Faulkner House Books and my daughter notices the sign ‘Maximun Occupancy 12‘! Cute store with several First Editions, all of James Burke‘s NOLA books, a beautiful set of Jane Austen‘s Books, and a set of Penguin Drop Caps A-Z. #NewOrleans #GetIndie

BookaholicNatty Soooooo awesome!!!!! Book store bucket list destination!!! One day! ❤️📚 2y
Lola I love this little spot. And never noticed that sign! ? Café DuMonde is just a short walk away! I‘ll be in NOLA next week-can‘t wait to take my daughter to both of those places. Enjoy! 2y
Cortg Nice! We‘re thinking New Orleans in December. I‘ll make note of This! 2y

DeborahSmall Loved this little spot ❤️ 2y
LizzieChantree I really enjoy discovering a new bookshop. It's so exciting! 📚📚 2y
tpixie @BookaholicNatty it‘s a nice little shop- very little -but some great reads in there. 2y
tpixie @Lola snap- we just missed each other! We just had Beignets & Café du lait yesterday- the line moves pretty fast- don‘t be afraid!! (edited) 2y
tpixie @Cortg it‘s a tiny place tucked away on Pirates Aly, between the St Louis Cathedral & The Cabildo right at Jackson‘s Square area. 2y
tpixie @LizzieChantree @DeborahSmall this a little gem of a place!! 2y
vivastory This makes me want to visit New Orleans again! 2y
tpixie @vivastory lol yes! And the food isn‘t bad, either. I keep coming back to New Orleans! I‘m hoping to get to another indie in the Garden District, but may not make it there! 2y
emilyhaldi Love it!! My fav city ❤️ enjoy!! 2y
rustoryhuf We stumbled across this bookstore a few years ago. Love it. Love Nawlins💗 2y
Quasifesto I was there just a couple of weeks ago. The best curated bookshop ever! 2y
tpixie @emilyhaldi @rustoryhuf this is a great place to visit!! We come every several years!! 2y
tpixie @Quasifesto the selection was great for such a small place and the Lady that worked there was so knowledgeable!! 2y
tpixie @Cortg just found another book in the Quarter- Dauphine Street Books is on Dauphine just a little east of Conti St It opens at 11:00- so it was closed- I‘ll check out later! . It has new and used books. 2y
LizzieChantree @tpixie 😀🌈📚 2y
LeahBergen You should check out Beckham‘s Bookshop on Decatur, too. 👍🏻 2y
TheBookStacker Dauphine is great. Octavia in uptown is great as well. Also the bookshop on oak street is amaze. 2y
mrp27 Fun! 2y
Mdargusch Fun! 2y
Cortg @tpixie Rhanks for filling me in on your bookstore finds, I love it! Hope you‘re having a fabulous time. 2y
tpixie @LeahBergen thx for the tip!! 2y
tpixie @TheBookStacker oh my! Lots of great book stores!! 2y
tpixie @Cortg I think The Gumbo Shop 630 St Peter has the best seafood gumbo so far! Mr B‘s Bistro‘s was good too. I like the darker colored gumbo. New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood had great catfish 541 Decatur St. 😊 2y
Cortg Yum! I‘ll have to round everyone up this weekend and nail down the trip. It‘s been a long time since I‘ve been to New Orleans, like before Katrina. 2y
