I wish I had taken the time to visit this bookstore more often.  I just found out it closed about two years ago.  It was a great place to spend some time browsing the mystery books and they even had book signings and a book club.  Read about it:

Circle Star Theater.  Such a cool venue in the sixties and seventies.  I went a few times with my girlfriends and saw some great Motown acts.  Too bad they could not keep the place going.

5/7/14 - Jot #127   Wordy Wednesday...   I was reading a book the other day and this word came up...detritus.  It was used to describe the things at the bottom of someone's purse.  I guess I have had some in my purse before too.  See another example here:
