I've never gone to a book tour before

Maybe next month will be the time to change that. Via, I have been turned onto the fact that the lady who made Me and You and Everyone We Know (ironically sitting next to the television in Netflix form, waiting to be watched) has a book coming out. There is a delightful tie-in website made even better by the analysis provided in that link above, specifically: "No web designer worth her salt would ever recommend building a site like this to a client. Yet it works because the story pulls you along so well; July's using the site's narrative to sell a book that is, presumably, chock full of the same sort of narrative. If you think the site sucks and quickly click away, chances are you're not going to like the book's the perfect self-selection mechanism."

She'll be in San Francisco May 16. I'm somewhat tempted to check it out.
