I managed to steal upstairs, commandeer the coffeemaker, brew up a pot, and slice a bagel in two and still go downstairs to nest for a bit reading my Anne Tyler. Yay! No one else awake! It was heroic and a feat.
How I love Anne Tyler. Why she's marketed as a USA Today author I have no idea. I suppose it makes more money? On the cover, though, the COVER of the book is a sentence from that newspaper (if it deserves the appellation, yuck) with bad grammar. I mean REALLY. It means that not only did the newspaper publish the sentence in the first place, but then it passed over the desks of numerous designers and editors and etc. into my hands. And it is WRONG.
I suppose I have to put it down now that I've made a big deal out of it.
On the front cover:
"One of those books that readers close at the end and recognize the truth they contain." -- USA Today
ONE of those books...the truth THEY contain. See? One? They? Not matching!
Unless maybe the "THEY" refers to the readers? So the readers close the book and recognize their own truth-filled selves?
Gah. Shabby. Poorly done. I think I'll go recognize my truth and sit around in bed some more. I daren't get more coffee. One time up the stairs was risky enough. Nesting time is completely necessary at this juncture.
