I'm Crazy 'Bout These Cupcakes, Cousin
I've long suspected that the preferred currency amongst children's librarians, booksellers, and publishers is cupcakes. In the past I admit to having had good cupcake related experiences, from incredibly cool people. Later on I discovered further evidence to back up my cupcake currency claim. Now The Analytical Knife has put the final nail in the coffin, as it were. The post Having Your Cupcake and Eating It Too notes the Manhattan-based difficulties of purchasing these tasty treats for less than $5. The sad part of the story, to my mind, is that she was a mere 2-3 blocks away from one of The Cupcake Cafe locations in beautiful Books of Wonder (a children's bookstore that falls into the Must Visit category for you NYC bound fillies). The post is well worth a read, in spite of this sad element.
