Book Trip

I have a $12 gift certificate from the local independent bookstore burning a whole in my pocket. I'm going to use it up on Monday and I have narrowed my choices down to two books.

The first is Lisa See's Peony in Love. Lisa is the daughter of author Carolyn See who wrote one of my favorite writing books, Making a Literary Life. Lisa is also the author of another book on my shelf, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Both books deal with Asian families and dark personal histories.

The other book is self-help. I've decided I complain too much about pretty much everything. No one's complained about my complaining but I think it would make an improvement on my personality. The titled is A Complaint Free World: How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted. An editor at BellaOnline recommended it.

What I end up with remains to be seen.
