Tag Archives: Brazos Bookstore

you’re invited !!!

Pretty much every book-related thing I do is fun.  But there’s something extra-magical about a book launch party.

You’ll be there, right?  Even if you’re in New York, say, or Canada?  Git yourself down here and let’s kick this thing off right!

(And PS: You can pre-0rder books from Brazos and I’ll sign them beforehand so you don’t have to wait in line!)

reading tonight at Brazos Bookstore in H-town!

Remember last week when I went to Borders and got yelled-at for taking a photo of my book on display??

I posted about it on Facebook.  And within about five minutes, Sally, who works at Brazos and is a Facebook buddy of mine, wrote to let me know that I should have come to Brazos.  Where I could’ve taken all the pictures I liked.

So I went to Brazos to take pictures.


And guess what?  There was my book!  Out on display!

I love all bookstores.  I even still love Borders.  (Red is my favorite color, after all.)  I love the smell of the new books.  I love the buzz that comes from being surrounded by them.  I love the sense of possibility that comes from having all those thoughts and adventures and poems in one place.  I even just like the shopping.

But I don’t go to bookstores now, as a mama, as often as I used to.  Because my kids can empty a shelf of books faster than you can say, “Don’t touch those!”

I’m always struck, when I get to go to Brazos, at how beautiful it is in there.  The books are beautiful, and so are the antiques everywhere, and that great rug.  And the lighting.  

And plus, it’s not covered in toys.  And, for me, that’s always a shock and a delight.


I’m reading tonight at Brazos at 7 pm.  If you’re in Houston, come by!  No toys anywhere–I promise!
