My name is Mike. I am a bookaholic.
We went to the Ann Arbor Book Festival on Saturday. A street blocked for authors, publishers, and booksellers, displaying their wares on a gorgeous summer afternoon. It also included a pub crawl, or “book crawl” of authors doing readings Thursday and Friday night, and all day Saturday at Ann Arbor book stores and watering holes. I settled into Aunt Agatha’s Mystery Book Store with Karen Dionne’s launch of The Killing: Uncommon Denominator, based on the television show.
“What I’m Thinking About” Wednesday

The first time I met Donna Goodwin(1) she was in the Macomb County Jail. She was charged with obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. The police alleged that Ms. Goodwin brought a prescription of Vicodin to a local drug store. The pharmacy filled it, then the next day contacted the doctor on the script to determine its legitimacy. The office manager identified Goodwin as a patient, but that the prescription was not legitimate. The frail fifty-five year old, African American woman’s first statement to me was that she was glad to see me and asked me why she was there.
