You Still Have Time To Buy A Book
Buy a Friend a Book Week is half over, but you still have time to go out a buy a book for somebody. Any book. Anybody.
Today I bought a book for the person in my life I know will appreciate it most--moi. I ordered myself a copy of Ghost Empire: How the French Almost Conquered North America by Philip Marchand. I've wanted it since last fall when I read a review at Critical Mass.
See? Blogs do sell books.
I am so excited about this because I only have two shelves of books to read upstairs...and half of one of those baskets that are supposed to hold firewood but at our house hold books...and a half a foot of professional books and journals on a table here in the office...and a dozen library books...and four books on the floor next to my bed...and another foot or so of magazines and newspapers next to the couch...
