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.

Snow? Guess you missed the February 5–6, 2010 Snowmageddon, with parts of the Baltimore metro area receiving more than 20 inches. 🙂
I grew up in San Diego and if we went up into the mountains to experience snow there was usually plenty of time to get back and hit the beach. I did enough hard-time up in the New York area that I never want to live in snow country again. Yes, I missed that particular snow storm since I was down here roaming around Savannah in a T-shirt and shorts. Actually it’s quite comforting to hear about the heavy snow in the North-East … as long as I’m in the South.
