Remember Newspapers?

(Yellowknifer, Wednesday, Oct 22, 2008)

Thanks to Daron Letts of the local paper, the Yellowknifer, for featuring "The Book Mine Set" last week. He also printed a copy of a review I submitted of Zachariah Wells's Jailbreaks (the typo in the tagline is not mine, I swear!) In the same paper he also did a feature on BookCrossers living here in Yellowknife. Did I mention how awesome Daron is?

Nice.

Joy said...

Well, how cool is that!?! :)

Wanda said...

Great News!
Congratulations, John. :)

Robert said...

Congratulations!

Woohoo for you! And I'm really impressed that they did a little feature on Bookcrossers, too. I tried to get area papers (when I was in Ohio) to write or publish a feature about Bookcrossing, but no such luck.

Very cool, John. You are turning into a multi-media king. :-)

Traveler One: Thanks. It certainly made my day.

Jo-Ann, Bookchronicle, Wanda, and Robert: Thank-you, though I'm not sure congrats are in order. Blushy emoticon here.

Allison: Yes, it was a very woohooey moment.

Corey: Indeed.

Joy: Seven.

Jenna: What was interesting for me was that he named a whole bunch of local BookCrossers that I hadn't heard of. I'll be on the look out for their books now for sure.

Sam: I think my next projects will be a book club and possibly a magazine simply named "J" that will feature my face on the cover of every single issue ;)

This is great! A feature and a review. Very nice. (and I'd read "J"!)

That is one fine newspaper! Kudos to them for recognising such talent in the community.

Wow John! Now that your a celebrity, I hope you remember all of us "little people". LOL!

All kiding aside, I think it is very cool!
