Dear Annie,

Bob and I are off on a very small vacation, wandering around Virginia and North Carolina for a few days.  We'll end up at Monticello, which I haven't visited since I was 14.  Jefferson's Sons (which I still wish had won the Newbery medal) has added to my curiosity about Jefferson's home.

While we're on tour, I offer you a tour of a different kind.  This one's a Blog Tour, celebrating Diana Wynne Jones, who died a little more than a year ago.  Sixteen different bloggers -- many of whom appear to have known her -- have signed up to blog about Jones on successive weekdays.  So here's the site.  And here's a Publishers Weekly article about all that's being done to commemorate her, including a gathering today in her home town of Bristol.  (Make sure to scroll down to the world's oddest cake.)
