This is The Good Part
August 29, 2011
So I’m starting to get awesome emails from parents, teachers, librarians, and educators who have read CJJ.
But i have to say — no offense to the above people — the best comments are from the kids. Of course.
Here’s one from a boy named Jake:
It is the last Saturday of summer and I just finished your book. We are in the house waiting for huricane Irene to hit our state. I do not like to read. Your book was my moms idea. I didn’t want to admit it but I really liked the book. Some nights I kept asking for just one more chapter before bed but I would ask until mom would ready me about 10 more chapters. I had a big surgery this summer and I was stuck inside for a lot of my vacation. Your book helped keep me company while I got better. Thanks. I am still not looking forward to reading school stuff this Monday but I guess I will have to. Thanks!
Jake – thank YOU! And if you’re out there, i tried to send you an email, but it bounced back. So contact me again, because i want to send you some bookmarks!
That goes for everyone else, too – if you send me a note telling me what you thought of the book, i’ll send you back some signed bookmarks. Sadly, signed by me, not J.K Rowling. But still – better than nothin’, right?
