    Sorry to change RSVP so late - the day got too busy. I listened to the book on audio, read by the author. Lots of laughs. Loved it.

    This will be my first meeting. For whatever reason I'm nervous, even thought about changing my RSVP. But I will be there.

    I think I'm going to go! How much of the book have you guys read already? I'd have to get moving today and get on it if I do! How is the book? Worth it?

    Saw this link to an interview the author did a few months ago on NPR related to this book..hope the link works, because I have to say, I like him a whole lot better after hearing this...the book alone wouldn't have left me with the same impression! NPR Interview April 25th, 2013…
