Nobody told me a new Amy Tan book was published! Though I rarely buy new fiction books, I snatched up a paperback copy off the rack at Target when I stumbled across Saving Fish from Drowning. This means I totally missed the hard to paper back transition period. How long has this book by one of my most favorite authors been out while I've been pining away for a mental escape under the snuggly covers of my bed for ancient Chinese secrets? I obviously haven't taken time to wander aimlessly through a bookstore as if time did not exist. Though I've been to Borders at least three times in the last few months, somehow I've managed to completely overlook Amy's art.
So, this is a cautionary tale for all you book worms out there. Once a person has children, there's no turning back the clock to entire weekends devoted exclusively to devouring a really good book. So far this particular weekend for me has been dedicated to two fabulous children's birthday parties. This is why I was in Target in the first place- Pooh Bear needed to choose pink and purple presents to bestow on lovely birthday girls.
And if anyone would be so kind as to let me know if and when Barbara Kingsolver releases her next book. I'd like hear about it before my six year old daughter graduates from college. I'm obviously out of the "great newly published book" loop.
Sigh. Yet another reason to consider myself as no longer hip.
