Thank you!

EEEEEEEE.

That is the sound of a hamster being squeezed too tightly by a three-year-old.  It is also the sound I’m making after finding out that your tremendous support of the paperback version of my book (which came out last week) is now #5 on the NYT paperback list.  I am so incredibly lucky to have such an amazing community behind me who is willing to buy a book all over again just so they can read the bonus chapter.  Also, I have lots of great tour stories to tell you when the tour is finally over (Come see me?) but for now let me just say that the greatest part about touring is watching nervous people creep in alone but leave as groups of new friends.  I am so lucky to be a part of your bizarre tribe.

Picture of a few awesome people from last week's book tour. They smelled like cupcakes and magnificence.

And to thank you a tiny bit for all of  your bad-assness I’m giving away five autographed copies of the new book this week.  And if you already have one you can just sell it on eBay, or use it as a coaster, or give it to your newest friend to test how easily offended they are.  Just leave a comment and I’ll pick people before I leave again for the next leg of the tour.

PS.  For real.  Thank you.  We did this together.

  182. That is so cool. You completely deserve it. And your/our tribe is really great. When I went to your booksigning at Costco here in Seattle last August, everyone was so nice in line. I was still nervous, and I think I babbled to you for a minute about it being my birthday, and you smiled and were nice, too. I didn’t have enough courage to stick around, but it was still the nicest standing around in Costco I’ve ever had. Plus I got your book for myself as a bday present. So, there’s that. Congrats on NYT list again!

  229. I would love an actual copy of your book. I downloaded it on my kindle and read it this week and I have to say that I knew you had a few issues based on your blog but reading your book really made me understand you better. It made me laugh to the point of tears at times but it also really spoke to me. I could relate to so much of what you said about what you deal with. Especially a lot of the stuff about your school years. I loved the stuff about you and Victors relationship because as fucked up as I am it gave me hope that someday I might meet a guy who will accept me for who I am and love me despite all my crap. One part that I really connected with was the part about your first pregnancy, it made me cry because of the memories it brought up. Thank you for writing your book and sharing yourself like that. And thank you for showing me that being me is ok, that my issues arent things I need to apologize for, and that people can love you not despite them but because of them. You rock!

The timing of the paperback release was perfect because I had a doctor appointment that included a one hour test and I needed something to read while I was waiting. I bought a copy of the book about a week before the test and, to keep myself from reading it (and possibly finishing it) before my appointment, I tied it closed with ribbon. It was like I was opening a much awaited present to myself after being jabbed with needles. Totally worth the wait.😀

I am old school and need to feel the spine, count the pages and carefully lick my right pointer finger before the last paragraph of the right page is read while I expertly turning the page without missing a beat.

    I have turned this into a fine art form since I was reading avidly since I was in 4th grade. Actually my first favorite book ever read 20 times over in second grade, was “A Fish Out Of Water” and I was hooked ever since. Not only did I understand NOT to overfeed fish, I learned that I would never be that girl who follows directions because people said so and would most likely have the same results at least once and wonder how I would get all the stains out of the carpet after a huge fish came barrelling down my mothers staircase and through the front door.

    Now.. back to your book. I promise I will read it, review it and post it on my blog. I SAWEAR!!!!!!

    Gratefully yours, an avid reader.
    P.S. But not such a good speller
    P.S.S. I used to be a good speller and won the spelling bee in 4th grade for the entire school.
    P.S.S.S. No the school had more than one 4th grade class. 6 to be exact.

  488. I gave a friend MY copy of your book (with the nameplate) because she wanted it so badly and I’m THAT good of a friend. Or you know, I waited until the last minute then couldn’t find it anywhere (because it’s awesome and sold out) and just had to give her my copy… which means I need another.

    Also, I love Doctor Who. And cats. And taxidermied animals…primarily stoats. I need a stoat. (I think that’s a given… we all need stoats, in coats.) Aaaaaand I’ve gifted it to others before. Which means I’m a giver. And a sharer. And I’m not normally all like “look at what I’ve done” but when you want a book and 404 other people have commented, you do whatcha’ gotta’ do.

    Glad the book has done so phenomenally well… not that any of are surprised! Congrats to you!

    oh, pick me, pick me! I am listening to your hilarious/disturbing/instructional book while walking on the treadmill. I get extra points for spending the big bucks on the audio version, right? Also, I tried listening while doing that weird elliptical contraption for the first time and I almost killed myself. So, more points for being willing to die for your book, I think. Plus, I need to see some pictures of your dad. I’m thinking of him as Captain Lou Albano, but I don’t think that’s right. In conclusion, I think you are a brave and wonderful person and writer.

  640. An old family story: when my parents were on their honeymoon during the end of WWII, they went to Reno and my dad ran into actor John Wayne at the bar. My dad was thrilled, introduced himself as a fan, and told The Duke that it was his anniversary, and Wayne said, “Congratu-goddamn-lations”.

    So, Jenny, I already have your book, but in any case, congratu-goddamn-lations!

    PS My father then ruined my mother’s part of the anniversary by spending the whole evening with John Wayne in a bar. There are no truly functional families!

  785. I almost never leave my hometown but I totally planned on driving four hours to see you in Dayton. Unfortunately, I have to stay home with my niece and nephew because my brother is going to a wedding in Texas. I don’t know if I could bring the kids with me all that way. They are 1 and 2 years old. Maybe you could release a scroll version of the book, or a stone tablet version. Then you can tour again and help get me out of the house. I would totally come out to have you sign my stone tablet.

    I wrote a song declaring my undying love for Jane Espenson and posted it for the world.

    Where does that get me on the book list?

    Or Jane, for that matter. Although I have to believe that if Jane Espenson called you and said, ‘Hey, I need me a book!’ you’d be all like, ‘Of course you can have a book, you created the Phantom Dennis.’

    And then the world would collapse into a critical mass of awesome and none could escape it’s pull.

    Not even light or gravity.

    I was at the airport this past weekend in one of the shops and a lady was looking at all the books trying to pick one out. Yours was right in front of me so I picked it up and told her if she was looking for something good to read, this would be the book. She asked if it would make her laugh out loud… I told her it would most definitely!:)

  836. Instead of “pick me, pick me!”, I am going to tell you a story. One day, due to the spontaneous relocation of peanuts, my coworker ascertained that she had a mouse living in her office. To make herself more comfortable with this new reality, she named the mouse Chuck. Her boss set a not-nice trap for said mouse, which she promptly un-set. I relayed this story to my almost- four year old daughter, who has had the following advice for my coworker. “Look under the desks, and around the chairs and under the heater. Is Chuck a boy or a girl? I think he’s a boy. What’s the rest of his name? How about Sally? Chuck Sally. Yeah. Oh, and if he’s hard to catch, you could use your paws to grab his tail. I have a smart forehead, so I could help.” You should send me a signed paperback, because I must be cool, since I am clearly raising a very cool kid. The end.
