You didn’t know I was famous, did you?

Ten months into this project, and I’ve been contacted in person by two authors now in response to my reviews!  Woohoo!  I am so ridiculously excited about that, it’s a little embarrassing.  Granted, I’m not blurbed (yet), but I honestly don’t care.  I mean, I read books and write about my thoughts on those books, and people pay attention?  This used to be a pipe dream!

Anyhoo – this was what was waiting for me in my in-box this afternoon:

Dear Michelle,

When my book, Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret, came out in May, you were among the first book bloggers to review it. I just wanted to let you know that the American Booksellers Association has chosen Annie’s Ghosts for the Independent Booksellers Fall/Winter List of Recommendations for Reading Groups, in the “A-List for Nonfiction” category. Thank you for helping to extend the book’s reach.

Here’s the link to the Fall/Winter list, in case you want to tell readers of Michelle’s Masterful Musings about it or any other books that made the list.

Best,
Steve Luxenberg

Isn’t that cool?  I reviewed his book in May and have seen it on the shelves in book stores since then.  I honestly have no idea how much influence I have, but I am impressed that he thought to reach out to little old me in his appreciation.  It definitely made my day!
