So I really do intend to write a real blog post today. But first this: If you would like to play with me, I am declaring the start to The Trans-Pacific Book Club! Play for bingo or blackout or whatever. Send me pictures and we'll read good books and chat. So before I sign off, let me take my free space and recommend a book. It recently came to my attention that not everyone has read The Poisonwood Bible. If you are one of those people, please go now and read!
