In honour of my imminent departure, my writing friends wrote me a book. In it they speak about the books that influenced them as they grew up, books that shaped their view of the world and themselves. They also mention some pretty nice things about Yours Truly. I'm slowly making my way through it, though it's taking a lot of tissues. These people are pros and mercy is not in the cards.
It just goes to show that writers will do almost anything to see their names in print.
Thanks a million everyone.
