Two Readings for No Dollars

If you're standing in or near Union Square at 7 o'clock tonight and you want to go to a reading from a famous person, you have two options. Padma Lakshmi will be at the Strand, reading from her new cookbook, Tangy, Tart, Hot & Sweet: A World of Recipes for Every Day. Or maybe not reading, it's hard to imagine someone reading recipes. No it's not, actually. That would be fine. Plus she is beautiful.

Or you could go to the Barnes & Noble in Union Square to hear Sherman Alexie read from his book that just won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, a growing-up story about a contemporary Native American boy.

It's a toss-up. It feels like my brain is in a Chinese finger trap, also known as Chinese finger prison. It pulls one way, but it's pulling the other way at the same time.
