Wichita and Watermark
Hey, I was just alerted to this article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution printed on Sunday about Wichita and Watermark Books. Great stuff.
FROM ATLANTA TO KANSAS

Wichita, Kan. — We're not proposing anyone change their trip from Tuscany to Wichita. But if you happen to land there, the city is like comfort food — familiar and friendly.
When one of my companions called the wrong number and left a message, the woman not only called back to say it was the wrong number — but added that she called back because she didn't want us waiting by the phone for a return call that wouldn't happen.
I've done that phone call thing recently, by the way. I'm pretty sure it wasn't me... but how could I know? It might have been.
it goes on:
...there's plenty to do in Wichita, which is already recognized Forbes as the No. 1 place to "live the good life cheaply."...
There's also a mention of Watermark books, where you can find me for an hour or two before 9:30 (any Sunday my husband preaches at Grace Presbyterian Church down the street - I go to the 9:30 service but he starts in at 8:15). At that early hour, before 9 am, they toss me for my coffee, and about 1/2 the time I get it for free. Not this past week though. Oh, and I find it hard to resist the cafe early breakfast items, many of which are baked from recipes in their 'cookbook of the month.'
Anyway, I saw the article in the Shelf Awareness Daily News. You can subscribe here for your own customized Shelf Awareness Daily News.
