Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: rrnewneighbors.org [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Amazon Prime Video has released a series based on stories by Philip K. Dick. It's called Electric Dreams.
Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

An update on some paperbacks by authors we have read. Neptune's Inferno (by Jim Hornfischer) has just been released in trade paperback, and is in Barnes & Noble. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (by Stieg Larsson) has finally made it to mass market (all my other reading has just gone on hold). I ran across Four Fires (by Bryce Courtenay, who wrote The Power of One), which is set in Australia and may be Bryce's favorite. Snow, by Orhan Pamuk (My Name is Red), is in paperback, but is not easy to find in that format. It is on Nook, though.
