Coasting on my laurels

Since my blogging has become very sporadic due to enjoying life, (Life is too short. I know!) an interesting phenomenon has taken place in my stats: people arriving here solely from my fourth and fifth posts. More specifically their arrival is due to the two images in the posts. I can't figure it out. The people arrive and leave since the archive is minimal at that point. Perhaps they do not know enough to click on the blog's title to see more current drivel. Whatever... 'Tis a conundrum.

Just so your time is not completely wasted here today, I'll add some bookish information.

If you are not a regular reader of TheBookGuide, you should be! From the "About Us" section: "Launched in 2001, TheBookGuide continues to champion real, rather than virtual browsing. It's about the feel of leather, the smell of old books, the sound of pages turning ... and the pleasures of exploring new towns; chance encounters with interesting people, and making friends...So TheBookGuide's aim is simple -- to use the immediacy and connectivity of the Internet to enable book lovers to enjoy the delights of literally getting their hands on old books." Amen to that!

Canadian? Or live near/visiting Montreal at the end of the month?
The 23rd annual Montreal Antiquarian Book Fair will be held at Concordia University Saturday, Sept. 30, from noon to 6 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 1, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the atrium of the J.W. McConnell Building. Admission is $6 for both days. Concordia students pay only $1. The official website is here, and a few highlights of the fair are mentioned here.

Lastly, Publishers Weekly is doing booksellers a big favor by providing a list of Fall movie tie-ins. Stale stock anyone? Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
