12/13/10 - Wow…am honored to be part of the most obnoxious book stories of 2010! http://huff.to/eKFaRo
10/24/10 – @ You refuse to print same sex marriage announcements; I refuse to see you as an unbiased media source. #youjustlostareader
10/19/10 – When you sell film rights, you cede control. Director promised me ending would be kept. He lied. Welcome to Hollywood.
9/27/10 – @ Often the educators are in favor of my books…but a parent complains to the school board.
9/25/10 – @ oh, I’ve had readings where the only audience are homeless guys getting in from the rain!
9/25/10 – The most common reasons my bks are banned offensive language and sexual situations. I have yet to meet a HS kid who hasn’t seen/heard worse.
9/25/10 – My Sister’s Keeper was one of the top 10 books banned by school libraries this year. Frankly, I think that means I’m doing something RIGHT.
9/25/10 – My Sister’s Keeper, The Tenth Circle, and The Pact have all been banned by individual schools.
9/16/10 – @ I haven’t crunched the #s -but I’m cool with that! There are loads of African-American writers we should know of but don’t!
9/16/10 - @ It isn’t that I wish she’d picked me- for real! I just wish she’d picked a woman writer we don’t know- not a guy we ALL do. (think ref to Oprah)
9/16/10 – In the past three years, Oprah has picked four books for her book club. 100% of them were written by men.
9/15/10 – Craving a Thin Mint. Where are Girl Scouts when you need ‘em?
9/15/10 – Worst part of being Mom? Having to make YOURSELF chicken noodle soup when you’re sick!
9/15/10 – @ Did you read my orig posts? There was no griping. Just a fact: women writers – even the literary ones – are reviewed less than men.
9/14/10 – Head cold + Dayquil + German media interviews. This could be disastrous. I am not responsible for anything I say while on Dayquil…
9/9/10 – @ I’d hope women of ALL colors like me better than NASCAR.
9/6/10 – Aren’t fringe evangelical Christians just as dangerous as fringe Muslim suicide bombers? Can’t judge the whole group by the outliers.
9/4/10 – @ I name all my computers, too. My Macbook Air is called “Wisp.” It syncs to my iMac – named “Titus.”
9/2/10 – Luddite that I am, I just discovered @pandora_radio. I think it will change my life. Or at least the soundtrack of my life…
8/31/10 – @ I agree. All talk about books is a worthy discussion! Shows that reading still matters…no matter what or who you choose to read.

7/16/10 – @ MACS all the way. I became a convert four years ago and will never go back.
7/15/10 – Update on Jake at the autopsy: He didn’t faint. But another intern did. Sadly, it was the intern who wanted to be a medical examiner…
7/2/10 – @ Macbook Air. Trust me. As a writer you will want the keyboard/word processing capability, and it’s light as a feather.
6/22/10 – @ If publishers WERE thinking of the reader, they’d create a pkg deal: 1 price that allows for ebook, audio, and print versions.
6/16/10 – @ Yes, technically I am Dr. Picoult. But as my son says, that only means I can perform HONORARY check-ups. [She received an honorary doctorate from Dartmouth]
6/7/10 – Let dogs out, they went nuts. Why? A bear, ripping the hinges off trash can and tossing trash in the woods. 3 guesses who must clean up?!
5/27/10 – @ Really! Clearly he’s just jealous of my Wonder Woman clout…!
5/27/10 – Memorial Day at the lake. All nine guests will be having fun; I will be doing 8000 loads of laundry. Wish I didn’t have to be the mom!
5/27/10 – @ You graciously remind editor that you are far too busy right now to shower daily, much less read/talk/stump.
5/27/10 – @ It’s not the truth, in my opinion. To call the slave trade the “atlantic triangle trade” whitewashes history (more…)
5/22/10 – We are the proud owners of a motley crew of five baby ducklings. I kind of wish I had floppy black feet too.
5/22/10 - @ Not sure if you’re being satirical…but revising history to pardon McCarthyism and to celebrate the confederacy worries me
5/22/10 - Really disappointed in TX school board. They have indeed changed how kids learn history…with beliefs that set us back to the Dark Ages.
5/18/10 - Trying really hard to get excited about reading the textbook Modern Ethical Issues in Neurology for research…
5/11/10 - @ Not sure. Because women read male and female authors, but men read mostly male authors?

3/15/10 - wants to know why every killer whale at Seaworld is named Shamu, even when they’re all together. It’s like the whole world being named Sue.
3/13/10 - Recognized by a fan in San Diego airport baggage claim. She was so happy she was crying. Felt like a rock star for a moment!
3/11/10 - Guess who just won Hippo Magazine’s Best NH Author in a reader’s choice poll? I’ll give you a hint…it’s not Dan Brown.
3/8/10 - @ True. But commercial fiction, sadly, is rarely considered worthy of national awards in the US – though it is often well written!
3/7/10 - Wow. The director of the movie PRECIOUS asked Sapphire, the novelist, for her input…What’s THAT like!?!?!?
3/2/10 - I also love the Washington Post: “”Picoult’s superb novel makes us inhabit Jacob’s solitude and abide his yearning.”
3/1/10 - @ Don’t blame the author for a publisher’s decision. Many of us are not happy either.
3/1/10 - @ Many have. But unfortunately, not much can be done until you negotiate a new publishing contract – w/current books, it’s too late.
2/28/10 - Kindle answers: my publisher is one of many who has delayed release of the ebook because of Amazon’s price wars…
2/26/10 - @ Yes, I’m the author. And yes, you wrote what happened at the end of a book…which ruins it for those who haven’t read it.
2/25/10 - Proud Mom Bragging moment: Here’s Jake singing at a fundraiser!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZeM3EmDtrA
2/8/10 - Asked Delta rep for info on delayed flight. She said computer won’t release that info for 3 months. And she was SERIOUS.

1/7/10 - Donkeys escaped again. I am being outsmarted by two asses. Just finished playing rancher and rewiring the fence.

9/22/09 – Nyquil last night. Coma this morning.
