It does my heart good when peo­ple come into the office tot­ing their dog-eared copy of my book. I love see­ing these intensely used copies that are full of under­lined pas­sages, and high-lighted copy, with copi­ous notes writ­ten in the mar­gins; noth­ing could bring a greater sense of sat­is­fac­tion to an author, per­haps, (or at […]
