This is the book I read at Logos today.  Delightful sequel to "84 Charring Cross Rd."  I was surprised at how emotional I got sharing her joy at finally visiting her beloved London.

In March, when gas was $4.35 a gallon, I took a picture to use as comparison as the year progressed.  It has gone up 30 cents a gallon since then (and this posting is 2 cents down from what it was two days ago).  In San Rafael yesterday it was $4.99.
