The history of the Fortune Cookie and it's humble beginnings by a Japanese American in California is included in this cute little book. A Year of Fortunes (without the cookies) is a beautifully presented little book (11cm x 8cm) and has a red fabric cover with gold writing. It has a perforated paper fortune for every day of the year, and includes 6 lucky numbers on the back of each paper fortune. There are 5 fortunes per page. You can tear a fortune out of the book and keep it in your purse or wallet for good luck, or give it to family or friends as a birthday wish, or pick-me-up. A lot of the fortunes are humorous like this one “Don't read too much into vague warnings”. If you like quirky, you'll love this book.
