Virtual Tour

Christine was lucky enough to be chosen as a stop for the latest Virtual Book Tour. Lucky her! I would love to be a stop!

Basically, a virtual book tour is just like a real book tour, but instead of visiting different cities, the author visits a given number of websites in a given about of time, either to be interviewed, to take over the site for a day, to hang out with the site owner if they're in the same physical location, or whatever else that the site owner devises.

The book that's touring this week is Urban Tribes: A Generation Redefines Friendship, Family, and Commitment by Ethan Watters. I haven't read it yet, but it sounds really interesting. If you get a chance, go check out his Top 5 lists - very entertaining stuff.

You can read Christine's interview with the author here. Very cool indeed.
