This Will Probably Mess Up My Recommendations

by Tom Bozzo

The contents of next care package from Amazon.com:

Items not yet shipped:
Delivery estimate: May 23, 2006 - May 25, 2006
  • 1 of: The Little Red Caboose (Little Golden Book)
  • 1 of: The Clan Corporate : Book Three of The Merchant Princes (Merchant Princes)
  • 1 of: The Complete Adventures of Curious George
  • 1 of: Spin
  • 1 of: How Would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President Run Amok
  • 1 of: The Pokey Little Puppy (A Little Golden Book Classic)
That's one Hugo Best Novel nominee, one continuation of a SF/fantasy series, one probable bringer-of-the-blood-to-a-boil, and three things for John and/or Julia. I can't wait for the e-mail reading, "as someone who has purchased recent British SF and The Pokey Little Puppy, we thought you'd enjoy..."
Comments:
I wonder what YOUR plog looks like!
 
I enjoyed Spin. I'll be interested to see what your take is on it. Maybe I'll write up something for the Ad Hoc Book Club.
 
Ah, the Pokey Little Puppy. A true classic!

When my daughter was three that's the only thing she wanted to read.
 
Sara: Me too. The plog screen was unable to provide me with the slightest indication of whether I should be interested in the contents, so I closed the window without examining it.

Alan: Please do. I have a growing backlog of material for the Ad Hoc Book Club myself.

Brayden: The Little Red Caboose is the present obsession; PLP probably will be popular, too.
