Ok Boston this is IT!

Last spring I went to Boston and damn near starved and froze to death.
I figured it was a fluke.

I bravely agreed to go back, coaxed with promises of scotch, Crimebake and visiting the ICA.
I slithered into South Station with Barbara Poelle in pursuit of Art.
Here is the first thing we saw:



















BARBARA'S Bestsellers!
Not Janet's!
Not Boston's!
Not even A Whole Lottas.

No. Barbara's Bestsellers.

That's IT Boston, we are finished.
Keep your art.
Keep your fabulous writing conferences.
I'm grabbing my broom and flying home.

Harumph.

Hey! Barb's Bestseller's has some nifty little books - saved my rear a few times with those long acela rides to NYC and beyond ;^)

And hey - she's an Indie! Peace, Linda

I agree with Janet. Boston, Bah Humbug...

Say it isn't so! This stone's-throw-from-Beantown chick hearts all things Boston *and* Janet Reid's blog. Worlds are colliding, but it needs to be in a good way!
