Home Sweet Home

Happy Belated Fourth of July to everyone! It might be Monday, but hell, Nicole Kidman doesn't seem to know that (she named her Monday-born kid Sunday today), so I'm going to pretend I don't either. It's indescribably wonderful to be back home after nearly five weeks on tour. Not that it wasn't fun--because actually getting to meet you all was the great part--but I definitely started to fantasize about sleeping in my own bed. Upon returning last week, I promptly slept for two entire days and then spent time reveling in the small things: taking a Diet Coke from my fridge without getting charged $6, roaming around in only a T-shirt without needing to post the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, and my personal favorite, taking a bath without having to envision what grossness may have preceded me.

Home has been so wonderful, in fact, that I refused to leave it. Unlike most fellow New Yorkers, Mike and I did something blasphemous this Fourth of July weekend: we stayed in the city. I know! It's horrifying to admit, but we actually had a long overdue NYC weekend. We saw Tell No One at the Sunshine Cinema and both loved it (not only was it well-written and acted, but it was also subtitled, which had the added bonus of making it feel like a cultural undertaking instead of just an awesome movie), had a BBQ with friends on their roof deck, hit some golf balls at Chelsea Piers (and by "hit" I really mean "attempted to make occasional contact with said golf balls"), met some other friends at Dean's for brick-oven pizza, walked the dogs along the Hudson River, and generally ate more Pinkberry than anyone should admit to--ever.

Merely reporting this has exhausted me, so I'm off to find more yogurt and another nap, in that order. xxx

Hi Lauren! I just finished reading "Chasing Harry Winston" and I really loved it! The story is awsome and funny and the characters seem so real. It look like you've been putting a lot of your real self in them (expecially in Emmy and Leigh... didn't you?). I just can't wait for the next book!

Hi!! I want you to know that I LOVE your books.

I first read The Devil Wears Prada and I was caught with it! Then I read Everyone Worth Knowing and I saw your personal style. I'm waiting to get Chasing Harry Winston, but I haven't seen it in my country yet.

Thank you very much!!

P.S.: And sorry for my English!! :(

I just this morning finished "Chasing Harry Winston." I started it yesterday, and used every pocket of free time to finish. It was absolutely DELICIOUS! The ending made me want to cheer, "Yes!" I just raved about it on my blog for my girlfriends to go out and get it today!!

Hi Lauren! I just finished reading "Everyone Worth Knowing", and I had to come and thank you for making me...weirdly enough, happy! I could not stop reading once I had started, and my poor kids had to listen to "mm-hmm, in a minute, honey" while I was unable to get my eyes off the pages. I must get a copy of CHW, and see if it'll make me all inspired and buzzing with joy as EWK did. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

Hey Lauren,

Read all of your three books just in one month, and I bet you know what I am gonna say: LOVED all of them. Don't even know which one was better than the other. But if I nevertheless have to decide, then I'd say Devil Wears Prada tops up the list, then I'd put Everyone Worth Knowing and Chasing Harry Winston would be third on the podium. Love your style, very unique and you are surely on great terms with your sense of humour. English is not my mothertongue, but I read all of your books in the original language, cos I think lots of your style peculiarities would be lost in translation. Can't wait for your next masterpiece.
