My staying in resulted in eating M & M's and Combos and finally getting around to reading "Kitchen" by Banana Yoshimoto. Though the perky woman on the cover kept me from taking it off the shelf for quite a while, I did enjoy the text portion of the book. The cover, however, really needs to go. Who were the ad wizards that thought that it was a good idea to put "BANANAMANIA IS HERE!" on the back cover?

reading it only took a couple of hours and rather than start something new, I read some old classic issues from open letters.

Hmm. Given my recent media consumption's [unintentional on my part] focus on death, I think that I should try to choose something cheerier different (?) for my next reading "assignment".

I had the exact same problem with that book - it took me awhile to want to get into it cause the girl on the cover was just so cutesy and off-putting. As much as you "shouldn't judge a book by it's cover", it's hard not to! I'm glad you enjoyed it, it's a nice quick read.
