I was quoted in Fodor's Paris 2010 --I think

I just got an email from Fodor's saying I'd been quoted for the Paris 2010 book. You have to reply to the email and give your name, member name, address, and my choice of a free guide. It gave me a link to a news story so I could verify this was a legitimate email from Fodor's but Yahoo Mail wouldn't open it. It also had blue links to the forum and to the website that shows my options of guides to choose from. It wouldn't open any of those either.

Is this legit? I'm very excited and honored if it is but I don't want to reply if it is not.

Also, if I was quoted, where can I see what they used? I'm very curious.

Connie, I am sure it is legitimate but you can email our Editor, Katie, at [email protected] and verify this with her. I am sure she will respond to you after the weekend. Best regards.

It's legit.

I got a free Fodor's Oahu book six months or so ago.

Now I will get another book for a quote in the Maui book.

Yes, I got emails today saying I'm quoted in both the New York City and New York State guides. It came from Katie's correct email address or else it would have landed in my junk folder. The second link didn't work for me either, but when I cut and pasted it I jumped to Katie's page.

Thanks--it was from Katie Hamlin.

I am soooo excited! I can't wait to see what they used!

Thanks everyone!

I got the same email today telling me that I was quoted in the 2010 Maui Book. Not sure what I said yet.

It's legit; I got one too. It's kind of funny, but I have no idea what I said.

Me too for Maui (2nd year in a row for Maui). I'll send the Editors an email, thanks for the tip.

I got an email today as well, for the Paris 2010. Curiosity is killing me!

In the past Katie has sent me an email with what they used.

I received my books yesterday. My quotes were pretty mundane to me (but helpful to others I suppose). I'm enjoying looking at all the different features in the books and it's fun to see the quotes from familiar names in the forums.

I got several books from Fodor's. Go to Random House website, pick one of Fodor's guidebooks - any that you like, doesn't matter where you were quoted, and send your request to Katie [email protected] - give your name, nickname on Fodor's, mailing address and I don't remember if the phone is requested.
