  •   inspringthedawn @territalksbooks @xicanti It has been years since I read it. Maybe I should join you, if you wouldn't mind some company. 1w
  •   territalksbooks @inspringthedawn I think you should read with us! @xicanti 1w
  •   gnoe I used both the inspring and tanabata gmail addresses I have of you. Was afraid you chose to ignore me because you hadn't heard from me for so long 1w
  •   inspringthedawn @gnoe I'm so sorry! I would never purposely ignore you. Those are my blog-related emails and I have largely ignored them this past year. Your emails are probably buried in the inboxes. I'm on my way out right now but will find them later. I promise!! 1w
  •   gnoe 1w
  •   gnoe No need to hurry! Just glad you're not upset w/ me :D 1w
  •   xicanti @inspringthedawn yes, join us! 1w
  •   inspringthedawn @territalksbooks @xicanti Ok. Thanks! I have to read the new Murakami when it comes out mid-August, but otherwise I'm free. ;) 1w

  •   gnoe REALLY?!!! How cool is that?! 4w
  •   inspringthedawn @gnoe Isn't it?! She doesn't live in Victoria any more and isn't involved in the store now but it will always be associated with her. 4w
  •   inspringthedawn @gnoe Her wikipedia entry mentions the bookstore. :) 4w
