Oh, my God you guys. Elliott Bay Book Company is hosting the most hellish series of readings ever today. First, they host Ann Linnea & Christian Baldwin, the "developers of the Peer Spirit Circle Process." They have written a dumb-sounding book about this dumb-sounding process, titled The Circle Way: A Leader in Every Chair. Then Verna Dreisbach reads from Why We Ride: Women Riders on the Horses in Their Lives, a book about "the deep bond between women and horses." And then Kurt Hoelting reads from The Circumference of Home: One Man’s Yearlong Quest for a Radically Local Life. This is a "my year of" book, which makes my skin crawl already, but combined with the words "radically local," it makes me want to smash my head through a glass coffee table.

But luckily, there are other events. Third Place Books hosts an interesting-sounding reading tonight. Gary Loverich and Barbara Winther read from Let It Go, Louie, a book about how Croatian immigrants helped found Bainbridge Island and create Seattle's fishing industry.

But the reading of the day is at Comics Dungeon this afternoon. Kevin Boze will be in attendance to sign The Virgin Project 2, a nifty comic about true stories of people losing their virginity.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here. And if you're planning on staying in and you're looking for personalized book recommendations, feel free to tell me the books you like and ask me what to read next over at Questionland.
