One of you emailed me a funny story about seeing someone reading my book in public and, every so often, turning the book around and shouting questions and comments at my author’s photo. I found this story inspiring because it suggests that physical copies of books might have a future. With digital book readers, you can’t scream at the author’s photo or throw the book against the wall.
And thank you to each and every one of you who has interacted in my book in a deeply physical way, even if you wound up flinging it out of a window, pelting people with advanced-review copies, using it for kindling, etc. Long live books unplugged!
