The Great Entangled Book Tour is over.
I visited ten schools.
I met some incredible librarians and teachers and lots of brilliant students.
I drank approximately twenty gallons of water, four gallons of tea and one gallon of gin. (Just kidding about the gin... honest.)
I ate one spectacular cupcake (thank you, Library Mice!).
I was given a plant and a card and a folder full of picture books written by students (thank you, Queens Park Community School!).
I signed copies of ENTANGLED, exercise books and scraps of paper.
I apologized for my rubbish handwriting many, many times.
I laughed a lot.
I nearly cried (once).
And now it's over. And I kind of miss it (apart from the crazy early mornings). Thanks to all the librarians and teachers and students for being so lovely and not throwing things at me. And thanks to Niamh at Quercus for being awesome. (Please bear in mind that she had to listen to my spiel over and over and over again. A fate worse than... something quite bad.)
Now onto the next challenge: The Great House Move of February 2011. It's going to be epic.
