I Heart Bookstores …

My husband and I were toodling around Hollywood the other night – driving past the old Tower Records store and the Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip. After dinner we popped into one of my favorite book stores, Book Soup, the sister store of Vroman’s in Pasadena. Both are fabulous indies and kindly continue to support my work. Nestled in between Left of Boom (I’m pretty sure I’ve been there – haven’t you?!) and Lawrence of Arabia are Chanel Bonfire and Heart of Glass. #Grateful.
