Dear Chris,

Since the day of your reading is also the same day I have to leave the country, I will not be able to attend :( In my absense, can you please save me a copy as I would really love to have one. You can bring it to me when you visit NY in April! Lots of Love,

Brian x

I read your blog and I don't know you. You should put your bio here in the comments for people like me. That way it will be less embarrassing, perhaps.
