Two things, first off the paperback version of Furiously Happy is on the NY Times list and I was like, “Look Victor! I’m number 1 and 2!”
And he was like, “That’s a 12. You’re number 12,” and I was all, “Whatever. I’m using alternative math” and then he decided to stop reasoning with me which was a probably a good choice because it’s hard to argue with someone who’s #1 and #2.
Anyway, that would not have happened without you so I’m celebrating by giving out a whole bunch of copies of my next book (YOU ARE HERE) because it makes me happy to pay it forward. Except I’m lazy so instead I’m just giving you an amazon gift certificate so you can order it (or something else if you don’t want it) yourself.
It’s also World Book Day and I need something new to read and you guys always have the best recommendations so tell me your favorite book that I should read. (Right now I’m rereading The Wasp Factory. It’s super dark, but it’s good.) So leave me a comment recommending a book and I’ll pick a dozen of you at random to get a gift certificate for whatever you want. (If you’re not in America tell me where so I can send you the right kind of gift certificate.) You’ll get an email from me at the end of the week if you win.
