As a boy, I used to sit on my front porch and read. One summer I read "The Illustrated Man" by Ray Bradbury (right). One of my favorite books of all time is "Dandelion Wine" by Ray Bradbury. I have a picture of me and Ray Bradbury on my shelf (I went to a reading he did and waited in line to have him sign my Bradbury collection, books that he wrote that I treasure).
The Southern California Independent Booksellers Association recently announced their fiction finalists for their annual awards dinner. The books include:
1. "Farewell Summer" by Ray Bradbury
2. "Peony In Love" by Lisa See
3. "Talk Talk" by TC Boyle
4. "Talking to the Moon" by Noel Alumit
5. "The People of Paper" by Salvador Plascencia
I am overcome that I am in the same category.
