Wanted to tell you how much i enjoyed The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History. I liked how there was lots of info to teach you what happened, but I loved the anecdotes, about clothes, beards and how bad slot of presidents were. I like your teams writing style, even though its a Teen book and I'm 27, it was a great read for history-buffs.
I just saw you did Ghosts of Chicago, ever done anything on Salem/Massachusetts? (I'm from Western Mass)

Thanks, Christina!

Other than the part in Smart Aleck's Guide, I've never done too much on Salem. It's a tough one to talk about! Some people get REALLY mad if you suggest that the people executed were not actually witches.

I love How to Get Suspended and Influence People and I loved even more, Pirates of the Retail Wasteland. I wanted to know if there was another book in the series. Thanks

Nice meeting you at "Sip" this morning. I checked out your website, very interesting! I read your book, Jerks in Chicago, a couple years ago. Great book!
Have a nice Sunday.

I'm currently reading your book The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History in class. So far so good (: so many commical things, which I definitely love ! A couple of my friends and I are purchasing your book I Kissed A Zombie and I Liked It, it looks and sounds like something I would read (: my friends think i'm crazy beacuse i'm so siked about it. Anyways Adam, my birthday is this Saturday and One of my wishes is to either meet you in person, or text you. But, you sadly live in Chicago and I live in Cali. So, do you think it's possible for us to text ? I mean, I know you're a busy young man, it's just that this has been my wish for 3 years. Btw I also wanted you to give me a few tips on my writing. You see Adam, I myself...want to become a journalist <3 when I start to write, I get so involved that I lose track of what's going on around me.
Hope you answer back,
Lisset Rodger. P.s. your cute (lol)
