  1. Love this roundup! I love used bookstores, walks, and books signed by authors too.

  2. I'm going to have to read the Octopus book, Irene. They are such amazing creatures. They definitely belong on a brilliant things list.

  3. Lists! I enjoy lists & had I made one, a coupla of yours would gravitate to mine, Irene.
    Thanks for the tip on the octopus nonfiction title. I was nearly unable to tear myself away from two active & adorable octopi at an aquarium. If I hadn't been with family & also with our guest from Bulgaria by way of Boston, who all wanted to move on, I would have camped by the tank the rest of the day. No one else felt the pull I did so this author intended this book for me.
