Book Tour Stop #12: Politics and Prose, Washington, DC

How had I never been to Politics and Prose? I’d heard about this magical store for years, but my previous trips to DC had always been fast and furious, and I’d never had the hours necessary to roam the many wonderful aisles. Good lord, what a bookstore. Big and friendly and well-stocked, with a coffee shop to boot. If I lived in DC, I would never go anywhere else. You would have to pry me out with the Jaws of Life, those things they use to get people out of crushed automobiles. The reading was FAB, and afterwards we went to Jaleo with Stuart* and his gorgeous, brilliant wife, and we all drank some sangria. Success!

*Pre-order Stuart’s amazing novel here. You won’t be sorry. It’s one of the best books of 2013. Yes, that’s right, it’s one of the best books from a year that HASN’T EVEN HAPPENED YET. You heard it here first.
