  • I do hope you receive a lot of fan mail for your publications and especially for keeping going strong. I came of age online and I cannot tell you how good it feels to frequent a site like Listography that has not breathlessly tried to keep up with the Joneses, Zuckerbergs, etc.
  • I was diagnosed with *** when I was 11! I sadly feel as though I have missed out on a lot of my childhood and my memory has been slightly damaged by trauma, ... sadly sometimes I forget the good memories too! I bought your books to remember the things that make me happy! I spend hours filling in the journals and remembering foods that I could once enjoy, songs that used to make me smile, shows that used to comfort me! So thank you for creating my coping mechanism! ...You have inspired me, all my love from England!
