I live in Takoma Park, M.D., which is a small funky town that often feels more New England home-towny than a suburb of D.C. Although people (including me) like to sometimes chuckle at our strict tree laws and our nuclear-free zone status (I often wonder if there is a protector shield that would come up if D.C. was a target?), and I’ve got some major issues with a neighbor that lives in a shed (long story), it’s been a great place to call home for the last 9 years. We have a great downtown, a fabulous coop and farmers’ market, and lots of cool people. So imagine my delight when I was featured here today: Takoma Park Five: The Book Club Edition. Thanks, Takoma Park Patch!
