Right at the entrance to Barnes and Noble at Oglethorpe Mall (which will always be the “old” mall to Savannah old-times, such as myself), a cover of my book and an announcement of a book signing this Saturday. Wonder how long it will take to spend the profits. Let’s see, Harper’s Magazine alone is $7. The New Yorker is close to that. Then there’s the Katherine Boo book about India I want to read. So many books, so many choices. In the meantime, there’s always, “The Dirt on Jane,” to be followed by, “The Real Dirt on Jane.” Stay tuned.
There we are, me and the folks from the fabulous Back in the Day Bakery sharing a bookrack at Barnes and Noble in Savannah. Once I had a peanut butter and jelly club sandwich there — three pieces of bread. Oh, I can never finish this, I said to my lunch partner. Finished the whole thing. Devoured it. “What makes this so good?” I asked Cheryl, one of the owners. “Butter,” she said. Of course. Everything’s better with butter. Total indulgence.
