The books are here!
This is a VERY brief note; I'm sending it because it's such a funny 21st-century moment.
Usually, these updates have been a matter of me taking my experiences working on the book and making them virtual, right? Finding a way to share them with you through the screen. Recording videos, snapping photos, explaining things.
But here's a case in which you can experience a moment in exactly the same way that I am. No translation needed. I was just sitting here at "The Medalist" bar and grill at JFK (P.S. not recommended), idly scrolling through Twitter, and what do I see but this tweet:
The link leads to a photo here. Look at those boxes!
So, there you go. You've seen exactly as much as I have, through exactly the same window that I have. That's kinda cool. I'll be back in San Francisco next Tuesday, and I'll go pick the books up and start getting them ready to ship.
Well—I guess it's not true that you've seen exactly as much as I have. After all: I know what the cover looks like ;-)
