Last night, I must have been the happiest person in line at my local bookstore. Why was I so happy? Because there was a line! A 10-minute wait! People were standing in line with more than one book.
Here's what they were buying.
Lydia (visiting from Detroit) bought The Story of Edgar Sawtelle for her sister and Masterpiece by Elise Broach for her 10-year-old niece.
Mike (Upper Westside) got The Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics for his sister-in-law.
Me? The new Artemis Fowl for my niece and The Encyclopedia of Perennials for my sister--a garden designer.
