  2. Congrats! When I reviewed your book for the Skokie Public Library I just knew you were destined for paperback glory. ;) To my knowledge, none of my other reviewed authors have yet to make the cut.

    Best of all, because of my review I won a prize from the library: an electronic sudoku game, now taking up space in my wife's Mary Poppins purse.

  3. As a Chicago native, I say: thanks! It must have been your review.

  4. I just finished reading "Dreaming in Chinese" and am planning to recommend it to all the other students in my Chinese class. It is a charming introduction to life and language in today's China
