Happy New Year! 2011 was quite an incredible year for The Book Doctors. We gorged on lobster on Martha’s Vineyard, dined on fine Mexican in LA, wolfed down Cuban in Miami, wrangled BBQ in Austin and Kansas City, and stuffed ourselves with étouffée in New Orleans, and ate eclectic localvore cuisine in Santa Cruz. We met & were showered with so much kindness by so many amazing writers and booksellers. Now 2012 has shot into the world, bawling and screaming, demanding milk and love, chock full of promise and hope.
