Here's the email I had to send to a publisher the next day:
Good news and bad news ...
Good news - The Pages in Between is excellent so far! I've only got about 1/4 left to
read, and I think it's shaping up to be the best memoir I've read this year. I've been carrying it with me wherever I go, hoping to get a chance to finish reading it.
Bad news - I set it on the top of my car while I was getting in and (somehow) drove off with it still there. Needless to say, it disappeared somewhere along the side of
the highway. I drove the same road several times in the hope of finding it, but with no luck. I'm not only embarrased about this, but I'm miserable because I don't know what happens to Erin or the house or Weislaw in the end!
Is there any way that I can buy a 2nd copy of the book? I'd be so grateful ...
No reply from the publisher either.
You can imagine my utter joy when a new copy of the book arrived in the mail just two days later!
I'm hoping to finish it this weekend and get the post up early next week. It really is a fabulous book and I'm thrilled that I actually get to finish reading. Thanks for taking pity on me Lauren!
