Would your committee that picks the “Bookmarked” titles every month be interested in a book where the very first chapter is titled “Target”? A book that tenderly and curiously and humorously portrays the world of Target’s America? Also, I read here that you prefer unknown authors. Well, can do! (And he’s available for Black Friday signings!)

    Frisco, Texas! I moved from D.C. to Plano about 8 years ago. (Don’t ask.) I’ve got to snap up your book, if only to marinate in somebody else’s outside perspective of such a wacky place (and bless your heart, by the way). I’m hoping you made room for the gigantic plywood yard displays that are somehow Christmasy, but random, like Snoopy’s doghouse and vaguely Smurf-like characters.

    Found in the supermarket today: Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce.

    Thanks for the note PleinJane. Love the plywood character displays, and their disregard for copyright!

    Dr Pepper barbecue sauce. Can’t believe it took this long!

    Hank: If Target stocks your book, I will DEFINATELY buy it there.
