Check This Out!

Sharon November 10th, 2008

It was a long and engaging weekend, and I’m running more than a little behind on sleep.  So far that the post I’d planned for today is going to have to wait.  But I did want to show y’all something pretty cool (I think).  http://www.amazon.com/Nation-Farmers-Defeating-Crisis-American/dp/0865716234/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226331487&sr=1-2

 It won’t be out until March, but I’m still pretty pleased.  And yes, that’s a beet!

Cheers, and more tomorrow,

 Sharon

    Very nice! I almost pre-ordered it but then I thought maybe you’d ship some signed ones like you did for Depletion and Abundance. I was sorry I didn’t get one of those.

    I also have preordered the book when I ordered Abundance and Depletion a week ago. I really like the Abundance book, but I knew I would.

    Congratulations, sharon!

    cheers,

    Good find. Too many people are so removed from where their food comes from - not enough food or it is too expensive? Just build more supermarkets!

    Congratulations! What a wonderful title. Nice book cover, too.

    Indeed, what a fabulous title. I wonder where I’ve read something like that before… ;-)

    (Serious note: I wonder, Sharon, if you came up with that title as a marketing thing? That’s what I did in coming up with my long, funky, descriptive title — to attract people who might not have seen themselves in the mysterious short title, even though the book was about them.)

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to buy a copy :)

    Cool! Congrats!

    Yeah, we did come up with it as a marketing gimmick - or rather, we stole Rod’s marketing gimmick. Aaron and I had our one and only fight during the process of writing this book (actually, I think that’s pretty good) about the title. We initially wanted to not have a subtitle at all, but New Society insisted, and we could *not* agree. So I looked on my shelves for inspiration, and there was Rod’s book, with the idea of “let’s just use everything” in it. So we did - it was actually longer initially, and included the phrase “wolf at the door” which Aaron hated and I love, but some editing occurred in the final stages ;-).

    Yup, Rod, we ripped off your idea!

    You call it “rip off,” I call it “tribute.” It’s all good!
