I am so totally bummed that I missed this book party in Montreal. Because even though I am in Connecticut, I was in Montreal on Aug. 20 on vacation. Of course I didn't know about you or your book until this past Saturday, when I bought a copy at my local indie bookstore. And I bought it only because of the cover. I've never done that before, and even though I'm a published author and should know that people buy books for the cover, I've never done that. But this was so kick-ass, I barely looked at what the book was about and bought it anyway. For the cover. And I finished the book last night and loved it, the whole idea behind it. I can't believe I never heard of oneredpaperclip before this.

Anyway, congrats on the book, the house, the whole thing. A great, fun read and inspiring in many ways.
