# 7 on the New York Times!!!
Friday, January 30, 2009
Okay, so really, I hate to be the kind of person who goes around touting her own success, and I'm vaguely uncomfortable doing it now (most of my friends and family don't even know that Firefly is on its third week on the Times list), but I really feel as if you all are such an integral part of it. Honestly, I couldn't have done it without you. You guys have been such an important, vital part of spreading the word on Firefly Lane and I think your enthusiasm has been contagious. Women all around the country are choosing it for their book clubs, and I suspect more than a few have talked to one of my online friends in the past year.
Thanks also to Lisa for posting the People magazine review of True Colors. What a lucky break that was, wasn't it?? As an avid People magazine reader myself, it's always fun to turn a page and see a review of my own book. Even if it's not good, but when it's great??? Well that's a call up the girls and order a pitcher of margarits night. :) Now, if only my local Safeway would put out the new magazines, I could actually SEE it!!
Okay, so that's what's happening with the books. But you know what's even more front burner these days...that's right...LOST is back on. I watched the season opener and I thought my head was going to explode as I tried to figure out all of it. When are they? Where are they? What in the heck is happening??? I love it, love it, love it. All I ask is that Kate/Jack/Sawyer get back together on screen soon...
And then there are the movies. What a month for good things to watch. I'm slowly working my way through the Oscar noms so that I can win the Oscar pool I have with my friends. To that end, I've seen Benjamin Button (loved it--thought Brad and Cate were remarkable, as was the make up), saw Slumdog Millionaire (LOVED it--favorite movie this year so far, but a very tough, difficult, gritty movie to watch--with a KILLER ending), Frost/Nixon (really good). On the list to see: Milk, Rachel Getting Married, The Reader, Revolutionary Road. Anyone got any reviews???
On tv--Private Practice, Fringe, American Idol, and Biggest Loser all have my undivided attention. I am liking Grey's Anatomy, but they better pull something big out of the hat with the Izzy/Denny story line. Haven't liked that much, but I like Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd...
What are all of your favorite movies and tv shows this season?
Thanks again for being such loyal fireflies and for spreading the word about the books. You guys rock!!!
