Ada Books will be operating under the auspices of

WEIRD SUMMER HOURS from now through July 31st.

That means that on most weekdays (except for the

odd Monday or two) I won't open until 2pm or so.

Furthermore, certain Saturdays will be pre-empted

due to outdoor festivals (Indie Arts Fest 7/18 &

Woolly Fair 7/25) and the occasional kickball game

(Holy Rollers rule!) Furtherfurthermore, my wife

has made it clear that if I don't take a day off

once in a while there will be trouble. Therefore,

certain sunny Sundays, when all my lovely customers

are on the beach reading and tanning, I will be there

too, shiny with sunscreen, sweating in the shade of

a big umbrella. It might just be best to call me first

before dropping in. Here's the number: 401.432.6222

Hey, you should totally come to this reading/music thing that's happening at Ada Books on Sunday at 4pm. Here's who'll be reading from stuff they wrote themselves:

Brian Oakley & Eric Paul are local talent while
Melanie Hayze & Robert O'Brien live in Baltimore,
talented folks from a talented town, I'm sure.

Here's Brian talking to a Rachel Ray surrogate:





And Drew Swinburne will be setting up his soundbeam machines!


That's him thinking beach thoughts.


It's this Sunday, June 21st, at four in the evening.
There will be a 5 dollar "fun tax" at the door.
And there might be beer or cold drinks inside.

Make time for the good times!

Someday, I'll have a cooler website. Here's

That's me in the last one. I've never looked so handsome.
