No? Yes? Well, it’s something to think about.

“For people who love glitter, there is wonderful news: all the modern plastic glitter that has ever been created is still right here with us. According to Dr. Victoria Miller, a materials science and engineering professor at North Carolina State University, the plastic film from which most glitter is made takes about 1,000 years to completely biodegrade on Earth.”

Now you can sleep at night again, not having to worry about where all the glitter has gone.

In last Sunday’s Seattle Times, a good article about well-loved local places for readers and book lovers, particularly Third Place Books in our Seattle area. Yay, independent bookstores! I shop at B&N when I am near one, and Amazon is useful for hard-to-find or out-of-print books, but I prefer book adventures at Third Place, Elliot Bay Books, University Bookstore and Powell’s in Oregon. Jeannie and I mapped out and visited 17 independent bookstores on our recent trip through New England and Montreal; the day wasn’t complete if there wasn’t a bookstore in it. If you are a reader and book lover, I’m sure you have favorites of your own. We’d love to know what they are if you comment below.
