I have enjoyed the posts on Facebook and for the RT Booklovers Convention (#RT16) in Las Vegas. I could not attend this year ... but social media brought Las Vegas to me.
Las Vegas just happened to play a part in my weekend:
- I stopped by a yard sale in my neighborhood and found a Las Vegas Hurricane Glass from the Hard Rock Cafe for a quarter. Hubby and I collect the HRC glasses (hurricanes, pilsner, and shot) from our travels around the world. We may already have one from Las Vegas ... but the price was right!
- I received an Amazon box with cozy mysteries, including Jenn McKinlay's VANILLA BEANED:
But after the potential bakery location gets blown up, Mel begins seeing another side to Holly—one that reminds her very much of herself. Determined to help a kindred spirit, Mel sets out to discover who is trying to keep the bakery from cashing in. But with a murderous mischief maker on the loose, the odds are stacking up against a happy ending for Mel and her friends...
- I am writing this week's blog today with the TV playing in the background. John Taffler and the crew from Bar Rescue are visiting Las Vegas ...
Do you believe in coincidences? What are you reading this weekend? What are you watching on TV? One randomly selected commenter wins a book choice from my convention stash. Comments are open through Saturday, April 23, 10 pm in Baltimore. I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 24.

Aloha Spirit in Charm City
Vegas also boasts the Hawaiian Marketplace on the Strip
with its own statue of King Kamehameha.
