...currently trying to decide between the Hummingbird's, Astronaut's, or Bonesetter's Daughter? Any recommendations?

it has to be blunt

Judy Blunt was one of the first writers I read when I moved out to Montana, and a writer I still highly recommend.

Has she really only wrote Breaking Clean ?

I'll let you know when/if something else comes down the line from this unique as the Montana sky writer.

Reading In Montana now in Butte, America

Lee, Russell,, 1903-, photographer. Butte, Montana, September 1942. from Flickr, LOC.

One might have already guessed but Reading In Montana officially moved its home office to Butte, America over the labor day weekend.
I will tell you it was quite the laborious holiday. Thankfully we house our ever growing and changing inventory in an Amazon warehouse and not at the home office. That means we were able to continue to sell great books to our great customers and, very importantly, didn't have to drag our inventory (over 1000 titles) 90 miles. We might have needed a second U-haul truck.
We are settling in here and my new (July 1st) job as a Digital Collections Librarian at the Butte-Silver Bow Public Library is taking shape. I've even posted a few local Butte historical digital objects for the whole wide world (www) to enjoy.
We hope everyone else's labor day was less strenuous and you all had time to pick up that book you've been working on. When you finish it up, come see Reading In Montana for the next one.
