In case you don’t yet know me well, I LOVE Ann Patchett. I’ve read all of her books, reviewed all her books, hand-pressed copies into people’s hands and generally swooned over her very being.
My husband and I have talked about a trip to Nashville and truly, my primary reason for wanting to go is the chance to visit Parnassus Books. Whether or not Ann is there, I want to step into her space and financially support her endeavor.
Anyway, that’s all an introduction into why I’m sharing Ann’s latest post on the Bookstore’s blog, Musing, which, by the way, I also follow.
Ann writes about the books that excite her, new releases, author interactions — you know, all the great stuff I’d hear if I were her real-life friend and not just a cyber-groupie.
In Notes from Ann: Planning Ahead, Ann not only gets me excited about some fall releases but reveals that she and I share an intense love for Colum McCann’s novel, Let the Great World Spin. (Swoon again.)

I am more than a little jealous! Bel Canto is one of my favourite books and I would love to visit her bookstore. Pics please!!
No firm plan yet for the trip, but it will happen in the next year. I will definitely be writing and snapping pics.
Bel Canto was my first Patchett and definitely holds a special place in my heart.
I haven’t read any Ann Patchett in a while. Might be time to actually read Bel Canto instead of looking at it on TBR list. This sounds like a GREAT TRIP idea. Excited for you!
That’s a great read. I hope you get to it soon.
