"The real definition of insanity is folding a fitted sheet ... and expecting it to result in anything other than a migraine and a huge turban."

So writes Memphian turned San Franciscan Lisa Quinn in her new book, Life's Too Short To Fold Fitted Sheets. Quinn will be signing and discussing her useful (and light-hearted) look at curing domestic divadom on Thursday at Davis-Kidd.

At D-K the next day: Say hello to Memphians Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, the couple whose story you read of and saw in the book and film The Blind Side. The title of their own book is In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving, and this week, they're getting a ton of national media attention. For some local attention, meet the couple at their only Memphis booksigning.

This summer's already been crazy hot. Doesn't Ice Cold sound good right about now? That's the title of the latest from crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, who will be at Davis-Kidd to sign it on Tuesday. She'll be discussing the book too at a taping of Book Talk at the Central Library earlier on Tuesday. You're invited.

And you're advised to take note of the modern-day ghost story Her Fearful Symmetry, authored by Audrey Niffenegger, who wrote an earlier best-seller, The Time Traveler's Wife. Her Fearful Symmetry was critically acclaimed when the hardback appeared last fall. Be on hand when Niffenegger reads from and signs the new paperback edition at Burke's Book Store on Tuesday. If you make it snappy, you can make it to both Gerritsen's and Niffenegger's early-evening signings on Tuesday. That laundry you thought needed folding? Forget the fitted sheets. Life's too short. Lisa Quinn says so.

At Davis-Kidd Booksellers (683-9801): Lisa Quinn, Thursday, July 15th, 6 p.m.; Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, Friday, July 16th, 6 p.m.; Tess Gerritsen, Tuesday, July 20th, 6 p.m.

At the WYPL Studios inside the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library: Tess Gerritsen on "Book Talk," 3:30 p.m. (seating limited; for more information, call 415-2752).

At Burke's Book Store (278-7484): Audrey Niffenegger, Tuesday, July 20th, 5:30 p.m.
