Well, by now it should be perfectly clear to everybody that we aren’t exactly diligent bloggers (is anybody?). Our new motto: simplify!

Please do go ahead and listen to today’s episode, in which we further explained the bizarro world of discount books, directed you to tonight’s “Thrilling Evening” event, spoke to photographer Mark Zelinski, and caught up with Barb Minnett! We also talked awkwardly about Nicholson Baker’s sexromp, “House Of Holes”, and gave you some early thoughts on Don Delillo’s upcoming collection of short stories, “The Angel Esmerelda”. All in all, a good’un.
