It was just a little brown box on my porch. Inside were ten copies of Math for Grownups.
Unlike the baby I had nearly 11 years ago, I had no clue this one was on its way. The book doesn’t hit the shelves until July 18, but this novice book author had no idea about advance copies. Duh.
I have to say that these little guys are just about as adorable as my daughter. (Okay, not nearly as adorable, but still.) The cover is like a composition notebook with a rough feel — really neat. And it’s not a huge, intimidating tome, like lots of math books are.
Great day here at my house. My first baby graduated elementary school and my other baby landed on my doorstep. Time to celebrate!
