I'll be leaving soon for my (hopefully!) final research trip to visit California libraries for my book project. The trips are simply a lot of work and I usually return home tired, even though I have seen many wonderful and amazing things. This trip will include visits to the San Francisco Public Library - Main Library, Berkeley's Doe Library, Flora Lamson Hewlett Library at the Graduate Theological Union, Coast Community Library in Point Arena, and the Mendocino Community Library.

I'm looking forward to being back in Berkeley, which is my first stop on this next trip. I hope to arrive in the late afternoon, so I will have time that evening to look around a bit before my work starts early the next morning.

I can already taste the mocha bianca at Caffe Strada; smell the musty, intoxicating scents of my favorite bookstore Moe's; and imagine myself biting into a delicious slice of pizza from Caffe Giovanni. One sad note is the closing of Cody's on Telegraph, which was always one of my first stops. My husband hopes the Bancroft is continuing their tradition of brandy & biscotti in the afternoon.

On to Berkeley...
