I Was Quoted in Thailand Book

I received an email today notifying me that I was quoted in the Thailand book and that I get a free copy of my choice. They provided a link that was supposed to lead me to my quote but the link lead me to a blank page.

I searched this site trying to find it but without success. Other than going to a book store to search through the Thailand Fodor's book, is there another way to find my quote?

Thanks!

If you email Katie, she'll send you the quote.

I was quoted, too--although it might really be mr_go's quote, as he did a bit more of the writing for our trip report, and I did more of the posting. But, that's okay; we work as a team.

Now, to figure out which book to order. That will mean thinking several vacations out...

Yes, I was quoted, too. I always wonder what they quoted...

I was quoted in the India book which I ordered and received - that's how I found out what my quote was.

I had Katie send us the book I was quoted in.....Japan of course. It was kind of cool as two different quotes were used to introduce two separate chapters of their book, Mrs HT even got a mention.

Aloha!

After I was quoted in the China book, I had them send me the Thailand book. So I have the new edition and was able to locate three quotes from my postings here.

I had a good laugh - the most quoted poster is eks - from her trip report that took over a year to complete and for which Gpanda threatened her with all kinds of penalties! Clearly, quality made up for how long the report took.

I did email Kate but didn't hear back. Just thought I would ask here as the link she sent me that didn't work was a fodors link.

Guess I will just wait to hear back!

Cheers!

Hi eurotraveller--eeks-I'm so embarrassed the link is not working. I'm sure there will be many confused Fodorites. I will fix this next week when I am in (and I'll get back to you with your quote). I send the emails out in large batches so it takes time to respond to everyone so you may not hear from me until Tuesday but I'll get to it!

I hope everyone is having a super weekend thus far.

eurotraveller, I was in the bookstore on Sunday and flipped through the book looking for my quote and remember seeing yours as well (since I'd already seen this thread). I don't recall the wording, but it was something about deciding to stay in Kanchanaburi longer (and/or liking it; hope I got that right!!). It's at the beginning of one of the early chapters in the book.

I have received a reply from Katie about my quote from Friday. I'm thinking they are backed up with emails.

Nobody ever quotes me. Why is that? lol lol lol.

Do the Fodor's editors NOT want to know where to go to buy charas in Kolkata, get a tongue job in Mumbai, how to get yourself thrown in the Ganges in Varanasi? Ptooey.

No style.
