Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life – A pre-review

Written By: Gary on April 17, 2005 No Comment

So I’m reading this book review (by Martey Rich Keenan in the Detroit News) for a book called Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Now when I read the description it sounded like a blog, alphabetical but a blog nonetheless. So of course I had to check it out.

When I saw the book it made me think blog in so many ways. Timelines, lists of things (like smells) and memes (yes, I said memes!). There is at least one meme in the book that hasn’t been done yet (like we won’t be using that one in the near future)! I’m going to spend some time Wednesday and read this one, you should too! I’m not going to say much more – the review and the Amazon info (which is more than usual) should be enough to get you interested if this is your kind of thing.

I just remembered this part of the story – So when I saw the review (see above) I tore out the article with the intent of adding it to my amazon wishlist, but I forgot. But then I noticed it in my pocket when I was at Borders so that’s when I looked for it (with the educator discount this weekend). When I grabbed it I noticed there was a gap like another copy or two had been recently purchased (since the review yesterday). When I was back in Border’s tonight (did I say I liked books?) I heard a woman asking about it (I took the last copy earlier) so we started chatting, I think she’s really sure she wants it now, but I think she wanted the educator discount this weekend…
