Sunday Salon ~ book hangover

Worse, I started another books and kept getting them confused with each other.  The first book was a memoir — The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap — about a couple arriving in a small town in Virginia and opening a small bookstore.  The next book was a novel — The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square — about a man arriving in a small town in South Carolina after buying a store that sells fountain pens.  Both set in the South, both about retail strategies, both full of small town characters, both fun to read.  But I kept expecting books in the fountain pen store.


Just finished

I have had that happen to me before where I get characters from two different books confused with one another, very frustrating. I guess we need to pick books that are really different from one another
