At the heart of it all, I’m a fan. A fan of books and bookstores. A fan of fiction and non-fiction. A fan of authors and publishers. And most of all I’m a fan of great conversations sparked by books. All that to say - I really need more bookshelves.

This Thursday (Aug. 10th) Eclipse Coffee & Books in Montevallo will host a book release party for Gregory L. Reese’s “Elvis Religion” starting at 7 pm.

The book explores the fantastically fanatical following surrounding Evis Presely. The event features readings by the author (who teaches at the Univ. of Montevallo), Elvis impersonators, free food and a screening of the “King of Kings” documentary.

Over in the right-hand column you’ll see “bugs” for Google and Frappr. As best as I can tell they’re both working fine. Go ahead and click the Google link and add us to your Google calendar. If you don’t have one, check it out. I was impressed and I know you will be. We’ll make sure we keep it updated every other day.

Feel free to add stores, publishers and libraries to Frappr. Add yourself as well, if you feel so inclined. You can post pics there of bookstore stuff. Soon (hopefully) we’ll have the Flickr pics streaming in as well.
