Harry, A History

On Sunday, the New York Times Nonfiction Bestseller List will include Harry, A History. It will debut there at number 18 (a very lucky number in my, and many other people's, family).
It's tempting to say a lot right here. I'll save that for the website; for now, I'll just say thank you Leaky people, who have been buying it and talking about it and... and everything else. You can't expect me to think like a writer right now. Thank you. Thank YOU.

Dear Melissa, congratulations from Brazil! Yep, I’m from Rio de Janeiro and I just got my copy delivered. It’s great so far. Congratulations and may this one be the first of many.
Oh Melissa, I am so happy for you. I love your book. I had to wait for payday to get your book, and then I got really sick. I finally got it 2 days ago. It’s so good. I read it until I can’t keep my eyes open. It brings back so many memories. Congratulations.
Congrats!!! Melissa, i’m in Australia so I haven’t got my copy yet but i can’t wait!!
I’m sure everyone will agree with me and say we are so proud that you have this great honour!!
Keep up the good work and hopefully you will come downunder for a book signing.
Soooo amazing! Ha ha your book inspired me to right my research paper in English 101 about how the harry potter hysteria has formed a sub-culture of its own. Well actually I came up with it before I found out about your book and I went to the bookstore and saw it and was like “now I HAVE to write it about that”. Your writing style really draws the reader in. A lot of the stuff you talk about in it seems so similar to my own experiences. May Harry Potter live forever and may you and leaky be right behind him!
With a dollop of love and a teaspoon of fan girl,
You deserve this Melissa! I just finished the book and LOVED it. As a fan, I felt like you were speaking directly to my heart in some places, rather than from yours. So cool!
Congratulations Melissa! For the record, I’m Argentinian, live in Germany, and I got your book through Amazon. I’m loving it. I just finished the chapter where you interviewed Laura Mallory and frankly, I admire your patience —or perplexity, or whichever other emotion that kept you from grabbing her from the back of the neck and bang her head on the table. Kudos!
