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.

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.
