I bought the book yesterday. I seriously considered going to a bookstore in another town where there was no chance of me running into someone I know or having the cashier recognize me, but I just took a deep breath and went into my neighborhood B&N.
Then, I circled the store. Who knew buying a book would be stressful (especially for a book addict like me)!?
I picked up the latest US Weekly and Harper’s (which has a cover story about the future of newspapers) and then took the plunge, grabbed the book and headed to the checkout.
I let out a nervous giggle when the cashier asked if I found everything I was looking for.
And I didn’t tell him to skip the bag like I normally do.
By the time I got home – after a long and stressful day – I really didn’t have it in me to start reading. I managed to get through about 5 pages.
It only took that long to read my first disturbing fact about the Palins: That cute little girl, Piper, was photographed when she was a baby to be the poster child for the Alaska Right to Life group. They still use the photo and it makes Sarah Palin so proud.
I don’t have a child, but if I did, I can’t imagine I’d let his/her image be used by any sort of polarizing group – on the right or the left! Just doesn’t seem fair to the kid.
Eh, I probably won’t even remember being bothered by this by the time I finish the book!
