Flower Confidential a February Booksense Notable

Posted by on January 3, 2008 in Media/Reviews | 4 comments

The February 2008 Booksense Picks are out from the American Booksellers Association.  This is a sort of national "staff picks" list put together by independent booksellers.  Last year they chose Flower Confidential for the list, and this year the paperback edition is listed again in the "Notables" section. There is really nothing more exciting for me than getting a little love from independent booksellers, so I’m happy today in spite of the wind and the rain.

I should have copies of the paperback by the end of the month–I’ll post a photo when they arrive.

  1. CONGRATS!

  2. Amy: I am just finishing your book ‘Flower Confidential’ and have found it interesting, informative, and entertaining! I worked at a wholesale floral distributor for a few years although I was in their plant department. It was a tough business and one I gladly left behind! Now I will check out ‘From the Ground Up’ and ‘The Earth Moved’! So little time and so many books!

  4. In a recent blog, I posted about flowers in the Bay Area having little to no fragrance. 2 friends commented that this could be because they are bred for appearance rather than fragrance.
    While I know this to be true, it seems that few plants in my garden smell of anything at all.
    Today, I was shopping in North Berkeley and bought narcissi from a flower stall. They smell beautifully and I commented to the flower seller that so little of her selection had fragrance. She agreed and showed me the book she was reading. It was “Flower Confidential!”
    She said I had to get it, and I will!
