Dear Old Golden Rule Days . . .

The academic year is getting underway, but don't tell Mother Nature. We may still get a month of summer out of her before she's through. Whatever she may decide, this is definitely the time to pick up one of our ever-popular August to August organizers in the bright color of your choice.

September 22nd features a great off-site author event with Naseem Rakha, author of The Crying Tree. Details are here. We've also got memoirist Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch, coming to the store on the 30th.

And did you notice the new tab on the menu above? We're always interested in conversation with our friends and neighbors, so we've recently launched a blog that gives us one more way to talk to you. Even more importantly, it gives you one more way to talk to us, and to each other. The door is always open--let us know what you think.

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune--and remarkable power--to whoever can unlock them. And then Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle . . . .
