There are few things more annoying than people tooting their own horns. But here we go:
Last night, judges for Books for a Better Life picked Spousonomics as the best relationship book of the year. The event was at the Times Center, Anne Patchett was there, and we won! An award! People read all these awesome books and picked ours! Thrilled would be an understatement.
While we love our book, and we are generally confident people, we did not expect to win. At all. Which is why when we did win, we were woefully unprepared for the acceptance speech (must reinstate rule # 500: always be prepared). We worked really hard on this project, and it was so cool to have that work recognized.
Thanks to the Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which sponsors the event, for choosing us. We were honored. And while I will probably never win another award, if I do, I will certainly be better prepared.
