End of an Era

Hello, friends.

This is the 657th edition of The Barnstorming and probably the last. For the past six months or so, Robbi has toiled admirably to build the new Idiots'Books web site/blog. At long last, it is complete and ready for your perusal.

The URL is the same as the old Idiots'Books site, and you can link to it by clicking here.

Some of you have written with concern about the fate of The Barnstorming and our intentions for its successor. Perhaps you will take comfort to hear that although we'll no longer be adding new content to The Barnstorming, it will remain intact and available should you ever feel the need to surf posterity for photos of Alden in various containers. As for the all-new Idiots'Blog, its look and feel might differ, but the same unexacting journalistic standards will be maintained. Meaning, there will still be lots of photos of babies with occasional mention of bookmaking and life in the barn.

Thanks to all of you who have spent your precious minutes with us on this site. It has been a lot of fun for us. Rest assured, we think the best is yet to come.

Matthew, Robbi, and Alden,

I have so enjoyed Barnstorming. It is the reason I now subscribe to your wonderful books. Thanks, and I look forward to (hopefully) continued shenanigans involving art, wit, babies, and dogs (with the occasional bit about grown-ups and business, if you must).

and . . . . I have added a new feed.
I will continue to be a faithful reader.
Thank you for posting in the past, which has made me feel not so out of touch.
Thank you for posting in the future, which will increase the probability of me successfully picking you out of the checkout line at the grocery store, if the opportunity ever presents itself.

Ming -
don't you know that in the future there WILL be no more grocery stores? Just pills that we order over the interwebs. I can't wait.
