I would move to Baltimore just to be able to hang out at Atomic Books and go to the regular meetings of their book club. Well, maybe not … it snows there, right? Oh well, but the least I can do is add a few of these titles to my 2014 reading schedule to honor all the mutated minds down at the bookstore.
For 2014 the club is reading books under the topic “Travel.” Here is the blurb from the Atomic website but do yourself a favor and spend some time, lots of time at Atomic Books.
