    "If youre looking for quotes from newspapers and magazines, NPR, book reviews, endorsements from thousands of readers and bloggers, google "Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life" and just see for yourself how people everywhere are responding to this book." In "Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life," Amy Krouse Rosenthal has ingeniously adapted the centuries-old format of the encyclopedia to convey the accumulated knowledge of her lifetime in a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir. Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere--preferably at the beginning--and see how one young womans alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways. An ordinary life, perhaps, but an extraordinary book. Cross-section of ordinary life at this exact moment A security guard is loosening his belt. A couple is at a sushi restaurant with some old friends. They are reminiscing. In the back of their minds, they are thinking of being home. A woman is trying to suck on a cherry Lifesaver but will end up biting it in six seconds. A little boy is riding the train home with his dad after spending the day together at his office. A man is running back into a grocery store to look for a scarf he dropped. He will leave with the phone number of a woman who will become his wife.

Read a good review. Cover caught my eye. I can appreciate a cool cover. But its like the extra credit part of a test--it only enhances an already solid grade. Getting it right wont help if most everything else is wrong. And getting it wrong wont hurt if most everything else is right. (There are countless books I cherish whose covers I dont like too much, or cannot even now recall.) The interior of the book--the terrain of its pages, where all those words took me, the tiny but very real spot it ultimately occupies in my mind--that becomes the book. Next I go to the flaps. The front flap needs to intrigue/not bore me, and the bio needs to tell me just enough about the author. Ill do my best to extract the authors entire existence from their 2-X-2 inch photo.
