I bought the book yesterday. I seriously considered going to a bookstore in another town where there was no chance of me running into someone I know or having the cashier recognize me, but I just took a deep breath and went into my neighborhood B&N.

Then, I circled the store. Who knew buying a book would be stressful (especially for a book addict like me)!?

I picked up the latest US Weekly and Harper’s (which has a cover story about the future of newspapers) and then took the plunge, grabbed the book and headed to the checkout.

I let out a nervous giggle when the cashier asked if I found everything I was looking for.

And I didn’t tell him to skip the bag like I normally do.

By the time I got home – after a long and stressful day – I really didn’t have it in me to start reading. I managed to get through about 5 pages.

It only took that long to read my first disturbing fact about the Palins: That cute little girl, Piper, was photographed when she was a baby to be the poster child for the Alaska Right to Life group. They still use the photo and it makes Sarah Palin so proud.

I don’t have a child, but if I did, I can’t imagine I’d let his/her image be used by any sort of polarizing group – on the right or the left! Just doesn’t seem fair to the kid.

Eh, I probably won’t even remember being bothered by this by the time I finish the book!

Evangelize!

    Yes. I'm going to bet this doesn't bother you at all by the time you are done.

    Please be brave. I just can't bring myself to read the damn thing. I saw it at Meijer, but they want something like $18.99 for it and I absolutely refuse to spend that much for it. (As an aside, Beck's book with the cover of his fat face smirking, where he's in some kind of uniform, is the first book that has ever made me believe that book burnings might not be such a bad thing).

    Anyway, maybe you can do a piece called “I Read Nanookie of the North's Book So You Don't Have To,” and just tell us all about it.
