HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!

EVEN IF YOU DID READ TO THEM IN UTERO...

Babies are more interested in eating books than reading them.

BOOKS ARE FOR READING (Random House), my first book for babies and a first in books for babies (teething corners!) goes on sale tomorrow. Barnes & Noble has it. So does Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Books-Are-Reading-Suzy-Becker/dp/0375874984/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231774105&sr=1-1

Let me know if your favorite store hasn't bitten for it and I can get them a tasteful flyer.

'TOON IN...

David Sipress (The New Yorker), Hilary Price (Rhymes with Orange), John Ward (old greeting card pal) and I-- my cartoonist dream team-- started doing cartoons for http://www.burbia.com in December. Look for two new cartoons every (one new Suzy Becker cartoon every other) week or 48 new cartoons every (12 new Suzy Becker cartoons every other) six months, as your schedule permits...

ISN'T IT TIME YOU RIDE FAR?

Ride FAR 11 (the 5 day-500 mile HIV/AIDS bike-a-thon I started back in 1989) will be held September 9 - 13, 2009. Get to know your bike seat AND 34 other great individuals! Sign up to ride (or crew or donate) at http://www.ridefar.org

That's it from here. Hope 2009 is off to a good start over there,
