My Book is Available for Pre-Order

I wrote a book. It’s nearly 300 pages long, so every English teacher I ever had can seriously go suck it because I HAVE MET ALL THE MINIMUM WORD COUNT REQUIREMENTS.

(Just kidding, English teachers. You made me who I am.)

And it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, and Indiebound. Real, reputable websites are carrying my book, y’all.

all-over-better-res

It’s called All Over the Place: Adventures in True Love, Travel, and Petty Theft. Personally, I think I could have done a lot more revenge thieving during my travels if my true love hadn’t intervened, but I suppose that’s another story.

I dedicated my book to Jeff Goldblum and there’s an entire chapter about poop.

It won’t be released until May, but you could still buy it as a Christmas or Hanukkah gift and have it arrive really late. The recipient will probably be a little annoyed this holiday season but come spring they are going to love your forward-thinking ass.

Anyway, I made a book, and I’ve been thinking about making another one. How are you?

  • Congratulations! I’ve read a couple of David Sedaris’s books and the ONLY story I can recall off-hand is one about poop, so I take this as a good omen for yours. (I also see you’ve published another post about staying creative during dark times — I’m saving that one for my coffee tomorrow. It is MUCH needed, so thank you in advance!)

    I’m too excited for this. The great debate is hard copy so I could eventually stalk you for an autograph or the instant gratification of Kindle delivery on the day of release. Decisions, decisions….

  • Stephanie Thomas

    I CAN NOT WAIT.

  • Ellie

    This makes me so happy!!! Am buying it as a Christmas gift for myself.

  • Can’t wait to read it 🙂

    Can. Not. Wait. To read it and more importantly buy and give it as a present.

    I’m pretty perfect but somedays, you know…. anyway I am loving the Christmas feeling thanks to Coca Cola, decorations, fairy lights and the prospect of over eating to distract myself from 2016. How’s life with you?

  • Andi Plummer

    Yayyy!!! Sharing the link to everyone and pre-ordering one for myself! This is the best thing I could have read on a dreary Monday afternoon.

    Congratulations! I have always wanted to write a book. I suppose I have written many books (tomes, volumes, exhaustive and exhausting works), worth of content over the past several years and so it is encouraging to see someone who has made it a reality. Good for you! I will have to check it out.

  • 9 foods we ate in Japan that I'm missing now:
1) Sushi! 
2) Kaiseki (a multi-course meal with tons of delicious little plates)
3) Croissants (Japanese bakeries seem to have mastered them) 
4) Okonomiyaki (multi-layered pancakes with noodles and all sorts of stuff)
5) Takoyaki (octopus balls) 
6) Ramen (so many styles, all so good) 
7) Yakiniku (grill your own meats!)
8) Tempura (so light and crispy) 
9) Onigiri (Geraldine was crazy for these - the best ones came from 7-11 of all places)

  • Geraldine bought this frickin' adorable tea cup in Tokyo and I'm kinda jealous (even though everyone knows cups that hold hot liquids need handles!). #studioghibli #totorotea #randtookthis
  • Sayonara Japan. We loved you so much, we're already planning ways to come back. Thanks to @nicelleh & @wescarr for insisting we go, and for being our tour guides. #randtookthis #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaplane
  • It's not often you get to meet up with friends at Tokyo Station on the way to Narita, but we lucked out. Thanks @benhuh @emilyphuh for the great lunch and amazing company. #randtookthis #lastdayofvacation #selfiesatthetrain
  • That's no way to describe how stunning the ryokan & onsen is here. Maybe these 7 photos will help. It's definitely modern, but the landscape, the food, the lobby, the architecture, the service... everything is just spot on. And we even get to wear yukatas! #randtookthis #hoshiniya #karuizawa #beautifulhotels
  • Karuizawa has its own creamery, and they make both matcha and black sesame gelato. It's frickin' tasty. Who cares if we have to wear coats to eat it. #icecreamtime #lastdayofvacation #nagaifarm
  • Waiting for the bus. With a friend.

  • This stone church in Karuizawa was designed by an American architect, Kendrick Kellogg, and serves as a popular wedding facility. Fascinatingly, it has no right angles in the design (though Geraldine spent most of our visit trying to claim that angles on exit signs or edges of photos inside technically violated this rule). #randtookthis #stonebuildings #curvyarchitecture
  • We have been incredibly lucky to stay at many beautiful hotels around the world (mostly thanks to generous conference organizers). But, #hoshiniya in Karuizawa almost certainly belongs in the top 3. Every detail is stunning here. It's almost sad to walk out of the resort! #randtookthis #randaldineselfie
  • My favorite train food yet - an ikura box! We've got 6 hours on the Shinkansen today (Hiroshima➡️Kobe➡️Tokyo➡️Karuizawa) so needed a particularly large portion of train bento and snacks. Luckily, Hiroshima station, despite a smaller selection than most, delivered.
