Naming blog posts is hard

Hawaii was a whirlwind and amazing. We explored, relaxed, watched sunsets, went zip-lining, drove mud buggies, had a snorkeling adventure, only had one shark encounter, came face-to-face with soulful sea turtles (in my mind, they’re soulful), and yes, I did get a bit of reading done.

A couple great posts about Andy and The Martian:

“Andy Weir on his strange journey from self-publishing to Hollywood”

“Andy Weir and his book ‘The Martian’ may have saved NASA and the entire space program”

BookCon and BEA just wrapped up: “BookCon and Book Expo of America in New York”

In other news, DC is wet and kind of cold (what the heck), and I’m dreaming about new bookstores to visit.
