Bossy’s week began on Saturday afternoon when she was asked to go on a cross country book tour! Of course it was Bossy herself who was doing the asking! But as you can imagine Bossy was flattered to be asked at all, even if asked by herself, and eventually Bossy acquiesced, although at first she was a bit skeptical in regards to the book tour concept due to the fact she doesn’t have a book.

The first thing Bossy did was announce the spring 2010 road trip on her blog and ask for her fellow bloggers and readers to sign-up for her (No) Book Tour so Bossy and her council can convene across the country and not sign the books they didn’t write.
And the response was tremendous. Hundreds of emails flooded Bossy’s inbox, many of them with the sweetest words of encouragement, such as:

As you can see, Bossy is all the rage in Montana and the Dakotas, as ever. In fact, it makes Bossy feel much better about her United States popularity overall when viewing her (No) Book Tour map in this way:
