I hope the new year has been treating you well. I’ve been keeping busy with book research and running my online bookstore. Last week, I took a morning off to make an appearance on the AntmanVs podcast. It was super fun. Details are at the link!

Introducing Austen House Books
I’m officially a bookstore owner! Well, technically, I have been since June when I registered my business and did a few local pop-up events. Somehow, (finally) launching a website makes it seem real-real, you know? We did that on Monday.
Currently, we ship across the US and offer local (Columbus, OH) pick-up. New books are being added every day this week. After that, it will be weekly.
Our selection is hand-picked and often very eclectic. Please check us out the next time you need (or just really, really want) a cool book. And feel free to spread the word to any bookworms you know! Thank you!
Tea, Coffee, Sweets, Books, Art…
My mom’s business–a true labor of love for the whole family–finally opened in the Merion Village neighborhood of Columbus, on November 9th.
If you are local or know someone who is, please stop by/and or send them our way. We are there seven days a week.
Our bar space, serving cocktails and beer, is opening soon.

Happy Belated Birthday, James Thurber!
I was so busy over the weekend, that I didn’t get around to wishing my favorite hometown boy a happy birthday. He was born on 8 December 1894, right here in Columbus.
Here’s a link to my article about the Thurber House (which I now live very close to, incidentally).
