Books are starting to arrive in both DC and Chiang Mai. The DC Rollergirls are hard at work prepping their used book drive for this weekend’s bout, where they will sell grab-bags for five bucks. ...

We have an anonymous benefactor! And she/he has thrown down a challenge! “I’ll donate $300 each to DC Star and Taw Saeng once Dewey is able to raise a combined $2000 from other donors.” Hey, guys! It’s Pamie. Aren’t anonymous donors kinda sexy? I always picture them with monocles and glasses of scotch. That probably says too much about me. I wanted to thank you for...

Don’t Let Mom Down

So Pamie’s Mom has thrown down a challenge. If we raise 600 books and $3000 dollars for the Village Learning Place by Monday, September 20th, she will allow Pamie to post video of her singing Beatles Rock Band. Some facts: 1. It is the first time Pamie’s Mom has ever tried Rock Band. 2. It is definitely after one glass of wine, but might be two. 2a. Pamie’s mom rarely...
