This week Paula found a real gem! An autographed copy of a Wolfgang Puck cookbook! It's made out to Jennifer, so if you happen to share that name, you have quite an opportunity here!
Treasure on the high seas.
Paula has been a good sport about picking good reads at the Booknook and had a book all picked out for this feature while she waited for me to stop by the Booknook. However, she was telling someone about that pick and that person bought it! Oh no! That happened to me a few years ago, I posted a Booknook Blog post on Robert Ramirez' book on the FFT and while showing it to my coworker, he decided to buy the book! Oh no!
So instead this week's Paula's Pick is a book she is currently reading, Snow Falling On Cedars. In 1999 this book was released as a movie starring Ethan Hawk as Ismael Chambers. From IMDB:"A U.S. Japanese fisherman may have killed his neighbor Carl at sea. In the 1950s, race figures into the trial. So does reporter Ishmael."
Today's Paula's Pick is The Secret Between Us, a story with a lesson. From Amazon: "Deborah Monroe and her daughter, Grace, are driving home from a party when their car hits a man running in the dark. Grace was at the wheel, but Deborah sends her home before the police arrive, determined to shoulder the blame for the accident. Her decision then turns into a deception that takes on a life of its own and threatens the special bond between mother and daughter."
Volunteers crazy about books.
