Tempting Offer

Hmmm. For a mere $500 donation I can get published in The Believer. It may be the only way.

Why do I find this amusing? Because Dave Eggers has been on my mind the last few days. He's been in town and did a reading today and tomorrow. OSU picks a book for the freshman class to read and this year it's What Is The What which I don't believe I have yet. (Gotta whittle down those 100+ unread books, you know.) Valentino Achak Deng was able to join Eggers for this evening's event.

What a strange thing! I guess you'd better make that first sentence REALLY good, if that's all that's gonna end up in The Believer.

I'm an old Eggers fan myself, but haven't read What Is The What.

Hubby tells me that I indeed have The What is the What in one of the Books To Be Read Boxes. When he mentioned it I vaguely remembered buying it at the Wexner bookstore.

I remember getting an email from Chris Baty this year in which he mentioned we'd have some "guest authors" send out email pep talks. I wouldn't doubt Dave Eggers is going to be one of them.
