Broken Barrier

My daughter reports via Blackberry that Getting to Know You is in the Terminal 4 bookstore at JFK. I've broken the airport bookstore barrier!

I know this is going to sound corny, but I just spent the last 15 minutes googling you because a few days ago I flew out to SF from JFK and before I boarded the plane I browsed one of the bookstores, saw Getting to Know You, and figured I'd give it a shot. I was blown away. I'm on facebook and figured I'd find a page there to signify I'm a fan of your work but surprisingly enough I found *you* on facebook, which is too weird for me to ask to be your friend when really I just want to show my appreciation for your work. I'm new to Facebook to begin with, so I guess now is a good a time as any to learn how one goes about creating a 'page' in Facebook about a someone or something you fancy.

OK that was long and rambling, but I hope it makes sense. Take care and thanks for making me care about Sci-Fi again. :)

Thanks, Julie.

@M.Chavez--Your account really encourages me that I will find some new readers out there, especially newcomers or returnees to SF. I think that was the intent of using a cover that isn't especially SFnal and which includes that blurb under the title from the NY Times about making readers care about SF again. I hope it works for others as well. Thanks for passing that along, and welcome to my strange universe. Feel free to friend me on Facebook, and let me know if you do set up a fan page.
