two FOR books
24books.org  We're the couple behind what were proud independent bookstores (Mansion Book Merchants, The Next Chapter, & Raven's Tale) in Davis, Woodland and Placerville, California. For 22 years we sold the best in hand-picked new books and had the best jobs we could ever hope to have. Now we're here bringing you a little publishing news and some comments on books, some bookstores, and an occasional movie.
Remember our motto - "The best trips are in your head. Read a book!" 
hanks for joining us. - Vicky & John
