Book Tour, Day 2: we are still alive.

Greetings, readers! I am writing to you from the great state of Portland, which is apparently in a country called Oregon? Geography was never my strong suit. I will be sharing tales of our adventures in the coming days and weeks, but right now I just want to thank Blogher for sponsoring the west coast portion of our tour. Truly, we could not have done it without them. We're heading out to read the Powell's in Beaverton. I can't say "Beaverton" without snickering. I have the mind of a 12-year-old.

Just wanted to say how much I have loved your book. I've got an 8 week old, and it is such a relief to get a break from being all EARNEST and INTENSE about my little bundle of joy and instead laugh until I pee my pants. Bless you.

Well, if you ever make it out to Kentucky, we have Big Bone Lick State Park. (Congrats on your tour btw!)

Nice to you both tonight. We do love our beavers here in Oregon!
The day my daughter came singing a scout song about beavers my husband & I about died.
"Beaver one
Beaver one
Let's all have some beaver fun!"
And it goes on through more numbers if you can stand it.
I'm too socially awkward to ask questions in front of actual people, but I was one of the many purple clad women. You were both delightful, and have exactly the voices & tone I thought you would have. Of course I've seen you on video, so I don't know why that surprises me at all. Why am I still writing this comment. I don't know.
Thanks for visiting PDX!

You should consider an additional leg of your tour and only visit towns with names that make you laugh like a 12-year old boy. Next up, Intercourse PA.

If you ask the Blogher folk nicely, will they send you across the pond? Please? Just think of the place-names (Twatt; Cocks; Muff.. [I swear]). You know it's law over here to break for cream tea at 4pm sharp every day. That's after your 3-hour 5-course breakfast. And if you time it properly you can do a signing outside of Buckingham Palace on the morning of the 29th April - you'll be guaranteed a crowd... Pretty please??

I just wanted to post to congratulate you on being featured in the the Daily What! It was so exciting to see your book there...I hope it does great things for sales!

If you ever come to the Northwest Ohio, Southeast Michigan area, there is a bookstore in Troy, MI that is on Big Beaver Road. And (I am NOT kidding on this) it is exit 69 off of the interstate. Yep. Big giant sign that reads "Exit 69 Big Beaver Rd." If we had a wall big enough in our house, we would totally steal it. You know, because my husband, stepdaughter, son and I have the humor of sixth grade boys.

Don't forget to visit the lovely town of Climax, Michigan.

I just moved from Beaverton 2 weeks ago. I kind of want to cry now. But I love you anyway.

April 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMJ

Julie-is Climax, MI near Hell, MI? Or the opposite side of the state. As in "I couldn't get to Climax, MI because I'm stuck in Hell"?

As a person who was born in Beaverton, and whose favorite bookstore in the world is Powell's, I would think that you are in a little slice of heaven. Hope you enjoyed!
