irst, San Diego's Balboa Park
is now one of my favorite places in the world. What more could one ask than botanical wonders, lush grass, a good restaurant or two, and more museums than you could shake a palm frond at?

Saturday's book shopping at the Adams Avenue Book Store
and Marston House
in San Diego and Counterpoint Records & Books
in Los Angeles yielded Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities
; two by P.G. Wodehouse, including a collection of his one-liners; thoughts on evolution from E.O. Wilson; Mischief,
by Bouchercon discovery Charlotte Armstrong; and a good photo of one of the Adams Avenue shop's two cats.
