Battery Park Book Exchange and Wine Bar. It has to be one of the coolest book stores I have visited. Used books AND wine AND cheese? It's heaven. Asheville was also a pleasant surprise. If you are a beer lover you must go. And great food. And fun people and shopping. The people in Asheville have strong opinions and want to steer you toward the best choice. It reminded me of Austin, TX.
The book? Silly but not bad. A little raunchier than most chick lit. More realistic but a happy ending. A funny, touching, story of women coming together who share a common interest and become friends. No harm, no foul.
I need to start researching some modern German authors. Maybe mysteries set in Berlin. Looks like that is the vacation destination this year! Air Berlin is now in Chicago and offering direct flights! So let the vacation research begin.
