Thank you Kentucky! Next up: World Book Night kick-off in Seattle

Kentucky was amazing. Despite the Wildcats losing to UCONN the folks in the Bluegrass State were in high spirits, especially the students, who turned out in droves (okay, in busses, but you know what I mean). We even went full-tilt selfie a few times which was too much fun. Thanks Carla!

Speaking of fun, this image of yours truly speaking in a classroom was just dyyyyyying to be photoshopped. Dying, I tell you. A blank screen is like a blank canvas. It needs some attention.

Next up: World Book Night in Seattle. There's a kick-off event at Elliott Bay Book Company where I'll be teaming up with the amazing Maria Semple who wrote Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

See. You. There.

Thank you Missouri! Next up: Kentucky

Thank you Kansas City & St. Charles!I had some company in the green roomWhen I was in Los Angeles there was an earthquake (actually two). When I was in St. Louis...there was a tornado. Is it me? If it is, I'm sorry Kentucky, perhaps you should start building an ark. A bomb shelter? A doom bunker in preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse?

I'm home for a few days before I turn around and head to Paducah for a college read. Then home again and a quick pivot to Seattle for World Book Night.

And in case you're wondering how many frequent flyer miles I have, it's more than 800,000. At this point I'm just going for a cool million, then I'll figure out what to do with them. Travel to the Kingdom of Tuvalu? Get a ride on the Space Shuttle? Donate them to charity?

Less travel. More writing. That's the plan for now. Oh, and a nap.
