And I can tell you firsthand that I've seen shrimp and (even better) soft cheeses at publishing parties--which is a most delicious economic indicator.

Am I worried? Er, yes. A little. But there are reasons to be very hopeful, too.

I know this is totally off topic, but I just had a flashback to last year when I wrote about the book "The Boy In the Striped Pyjamas" on my blog and you said something about it sounding great. Did you end up reading that? Would love to know what you thought of it!

I love that you're economic indicator is based on delicious foods. I think if they added delicious pastries in the mix it would only raise our positive outlook.

That being said I was happy to see adult fiction had climbed. Then again, it is because I'm quite partial to adult fiction, since it's what I write.

I started trying to publish my first book in 2008. Coincidence? I think not.
