Get ’em while they’re hot

We won’t go into the complicated and deeply embarrassing reason for falling behind in the old book order department, but we will say that we have flogged ourself and we are sorry and Kevin the UPS guy (above) staggered in with a huge load including the following:  Bernhard Schlink’s The Weekend, Steve Martin’s An Object of Beauty, Ruth Rendell’s Portobello, and Salman Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life.  None of these are quite ready to go out yet, but if you’re over here for the Holiday Concert and ask nicely, our Collector will probably cave in and put in a temporary tag so you can take whatever it is you want home with you ahead of the other customers.  Portia does that all the time and it drives us crazy, but she has some powerful hold over the Collector.

Speaking of that Holiday Concert, it will be interesting to see if six guitars pack the same wallop that eight cellos at the Concert:Nova violoncellapalooza a couple of weeks ago.
