The tour has officially ended. Bring on the confetti!!!!

DIANN: Though we’ve had a wonderful week of traveling and meeting new friends, the truth is there is no place like home. 

Today we finished our last bookstore visit (we stopped at 62 stores). Afterwards we celebrated lunch and dinner with WestBow folks and had an awesome time with them!!

Once we said goodbye, we came back to the hotel (Doubletree). Now if you’ve never stayed at a Doubletree hotel, most likely you don’t know that they have the best chocolate chip cookies around. In fact, they taste suspiciously like the ones my grandma used to make. But you know, now that I think about it, I don’t remember ever actually “seeing” her bake them. I’m beginning to question Grandma’s credibility.

Okay, so they give these awesome cookies to the people who stay here. This is our second night of being here and we aren’t sure if they only give out cookies on the first night of arrival or if this could be perhaps a nightly ritual.

But doggone it, we want a cookie!

COLLEEN: The four of us march up to the reservation desk. I first ask about the tickets for our free breakfast. Gotta do this with finess. The man behind the counter hands over the tickets. Then I go in for the kill.

DIANN: We're all staring at the man behind the counter as he gives Colleen and Dave their cookies while Jim and I look on, cookieless. I turn desperate eyes to Colleen and she blurts out that she’ll throw in two free books if they’ll give us all cookies. I’m sure the man is afraid we might go postal, so he gives us our cookies. We walk happily away with four cookies.

I can’t help wondering if this is anything like selling our birth rights . . .

Doubletree does have great cookies! They usually only give two per room, though. Glad you had such a wonderful tour and thanks for keeping us in the loop!

LOL! What a gal will do for some chocolate. :) Thanks for sharing your tour reports. Felt like I was right there with you. Wish you could've come a little further north, but at least there's Dallas in September!

I can't believe you guys hit so many bookstores. It was a blast seeing you again. I can't wait till Sept!

You are both so funny! I'm so glad the tour went well. That is a lot of work. And I'm definitely going for those cookies...soon! Thanks for sharing about your tour. I did feel like I was living it right with you too.
