On Cloud Nine

Even though I saw a flurry this morning and even though it’s about 35 degrees, I’m floating on cloud nine as I just came back from having lunch with famed Knopf editor Judith Jones! What a delightful afternoon. It was a small group, 8 people. We all chatted about books, our favorites, possible holiday sleepers, etc. Not to mention the divine food we had Eastern Standard in Kenmore Square.

Not much could top this afternoon, not even this wonderful paean in the Harvard Crimson about my store. Even this article on the NEA’s recent report about the “decline” in reading hasn’t fazed me yet.
