Of Mermaids and eBooks

Apropos of nothing to do with crime fiction, here's a picture of a mermaid statue I took at the Allerton Garden on the grounds of the National Tropical Botanical Garden in Kauai. One interesting detail about the statue is that Mr. Allerton apparently felt that her (original) forked tail contrasted too much with the spear-like shape of the surrounding foliage, so he cut it off! Hey, maybe there was a connection to crime after all ...

An item more congruent to the topics typically covered in this blog may be this article on ebooks and ebook readers from the Sacramento Bee. In it, John Lescroart, Cara Black and I (among others) are quoted on our opinions about them. Turns out I'm the only one in the bunch who has an ebook reader, which did surprise me a bit.
