From The Editor

Until this summer, I'd never read a romance novel. No doubt I could've survived another 58 years without reading one, but I would've missed something special - someone special. What brought this about had nothing to do with the romance genre at all. In the process of researching hypermoderns for BookThink's current Gold Edition series, I came across a book that was displaying unusual behavior in the marketplace. And it just happened to be a romance novel. Thinking that this might be something worth pursuing in a deeper sense, I subsequently set up an interview with its author and read the book - don't we all have to live outside the box sometimes? Many surprises ensued. See what they were in today's first feature article, "Naked Nobility: An Interview with Sally MacKenzie."

With me today is BookThink's Ephemera Editor Michele Behan, who, by the way, won't be breathing a word about ephemera. Instead she'll share some rather turbulent experiences (in more ways than one!) at a recent Midwest FOL sale in our second feature article, "The Perfect Storm, The St. Louis YMCA Book Fair."
