This Year I Will Buy . . .

Our small poll on projected book buying for 2009, worth less than the price of a cup of 1971 bad coffee at Shill's Maidright in Mason City, Iowa, triggered 21 votes. It broke down like this:

More books than in 2008: 7 (33%)

Fewer books than in 2008: 3 (14%)

About the same number: 10 (47%)

I am not in a position to know yet: 1 (4%)

So 17 of 21 will buy the same number or more books. We like that and hope the projection holds.

I take mine black.

For ALL publishers, struggling and paring the sugar and cream from the process, the trick will be to stay out of the red.

Pass the coffee.
