Good morning. I hope you had a good weekend, and that the new week will bring you lots of good, interesting things. Many of you checked in over the weekend and left great stories for Monster 173 and Monster 174. If you have a minute, please take a look:
And, of course, Monster 175 awaits:
175 seems very close to a certain Earth animal,
but I'm sure appearances are deceiving.
What do you think? Do you have time to please
In other news, Paul Stone of independent bookstore The Kaleidoscope in Hampton, Iowa sent me a note: Any chance of you sharing the love with us independent booksellers instead of pushing all your online business to Amazon? [BookSense] allows people to find their nearest independent bookstore and order from them.
Good point, Paul. Being the little guy, I should definitely support the little guy, so I've added a button on the right that lets you search for independent bookstores in your neighborhood. Thank you for the suggestion!
I hope the day will bring you a few smiles,
and that it'll be more of a smooth transition
from the weekend than a jarring re-entry.
Either way, you can always count
on the fact that 344 LOVES YOU
