Top-notch tour

Here is another great idea for a blog! The Independent Bookstore Photo Gallery posts visitors’ pics of their favorite local independent bookstore haunts. They even post a little write up about each place. It’s sort of a super-flickr group or something. Should be fun to keep up with.
We’ll be contributing Reed’s Bookloft and The Alabama Booksmith shortly.

The blogosphere could use a little southern lit love!

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.
