Seriously words didn't do it justice, that picture is awesome. Also ever since seeing Contagion I am afraid of touching things in public places.

i like the picture! As big of a public transportation advocate as I am, my parking pass is free and I have to pay $50 for MARTA. Last month, the MARTA machines ate my $20, and the staff promised me a check that I never received. I drive to work now, and sadly, haven't looked back. That means I'll have to carve out a different time of day to read.

In Atlanta it is well worth tuning in to WAFS 1190AM on Sundays at 11:00 to noon for The Book Report. The show is a lively, fun and interesting combination of author interviews, readings and reviews.

Hopefully you don't find yourself on MARTA at that time, lol!

If you are not in Atlanta you could always check http://bookreportradio.com to see if the show is being broadcast near you.

Ahhh Anne Smith thanks for that link. I always try and catch the show but NEVER get too. I should have checked for the website of course but it always slipped my mind. So funny I'm really about marta and saw a link for that show. I used to read the host's work in the Miami Herald. Thats how I know about it.
