  21. Geez, Catherine... do you eat? Do you sleep? What's going on lol You are on overdrive! I hope the tour is awesome and I will attempt to check out what I can. How was doing so many interviews? (I hope I'm reading into this correctly)

    I agree with someone above... at this rate you will be giving away computers/houses/cars at this rate! Can't object to the possibility of a Kindle! Then I can be one of the "cool" kids haha

    Thanks much for the continued fun (in book promotions and giveaways)!
