Selling Textbooks

Saw this woman tossing a sign around in stiletto heels in 20 degree weather. I was thinking what a freakin redic job being sexy outside in the tundra like wind. Once I got closer I realized it was a robot. A robot in stiletto heels.

Its true they are, "takin our jorbs."

Borders Closes - The end of an era

Borders was probably the single most contributing factor to my credit card debt in the late 1990s - early 2000s. I spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars on computer programming books. Then in 2004 I remember shopping one day with my brand new smartphone, a sidekick. I wanted to buy Make Magazine but I decided to try looking up the price online and it was way cheaper. I ordered the magazine right there from my phone. It remember because it was the first time I ever bought something online and I was real sketched out about entering my credit card number in. Shortly thereafter I bought all of my computer books on amazon. Now border is out of business. I guess it all makes sense. Now I shop from my phone all the time.

I will miss the experience of going to the bookstore (e:paul,32098)

Its so funny to see genres broken down by different percentages off. If you want magazine you should go now, they are going quick but they are 50% off.

What could the word going down from fishbowl be. It seems like a book teaching children about spelling should have more accurate examples.

Book reviewer needed?

Anyone who knows me, knows I really don't like reading non-technical manuals/science stuff at all but I got this request today and I think it might interest someone on here - so I am throwing it out there.

Dear Paul,

How does a girl from a working class family in Buffalo, NY --- a city where winters last for six months or longer and residents drape their windows in plastic to keep out the wind and the snow --- end up becoming the youngest person with a seat on the American Stock Exchange and a millionaire by the age of twenty-one? Laura Pedersen tells the story in her hilarious new memoir BUFFALO GAL (Fulcrum; October 31st; trade paperback).

The Pedersens, like many families surviving in the frigid North during the seventies, feared rising prices at the gas pump, argued about the thermostat, and fought over the dog to stay warm at night. While her parents were preoccupied with surviving separation and stagflation, Laura became the neighborhood wild child, skipping school to play poker, bet horses and trade stocks. Set during a defining era of race riots, antiwar protests and abortion rallies, BUFFALO GAL combines laugh-out-loud humor with a genuine slice of social history.

Laura Pedersen writes for The New York Times and is the author of eight books, including BEGINNER'S LUCK, which was chosen as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. Honored as one of Ten Outstanding Young Americans by President Clinton, Pedersen currently lives in New York City.

I am writing to see if you would like to receive a copy of BUFFALO GAL to review or discuss on your website.

More details can be found online at www.laurapedersenbooks.com:

Please contact me for a review copy, to request an interview or guest blog with Laura Pedersen, or if you have any questions/comments. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
Anna Jarzab
