"I did, but for the most part I found calling or visiting in person worked WAY better. Very few people responded to my emails, but almost everyone I visited took books on consignment or bought them."

Hi Jennifer, I really enjoyed your Christmas letter. You have a wonderful talent for describing places and inserting lots of humor in your travel tales. I LOVE humor! My spouse and I spent a week in the Cotswolds, and your book brings back fond memories. I'm a city lover more than country, so London is tugging at my heart to return. Excited to read more of your writing. Best wishes with everything in 2014.

Cheers, Kay
