Last week I received an NYT notice on Condoleezza Rice’s new book, Extraordinary, OrdinaryPeople: A Memoir of Family (Crown Archetype); see the NYT review. Yes, I am a Condi fan, so I rubbed together a bn.com Membership Card with a coupon, a few pennies, and free shipping, and convinced Barnes & Noble to send me the book. But I had to put the recent works by Jimmy Carter and Nelson Mandela on an amazon.com Wish List for post-New Year reading, which means I will look at them for the first time sometime around March 2011.
