    Q&As, giveaways and follow-ups

    As others have said, this is a fantastic update to the previous post, and congratulations to the winners of the book.

    I admire Donald Kraybill for actually reading through and answering pretty much every question that was posed by Amish America readers in the previous thread. Other contributing authors do so too, but I was struck by how many Donald replied. I like that about reading Amish America, when Erik has a guest, that guest takes responsibility to follow up on the comments made.

    These blog activities are also a fascinating glimpse into the actual numbers in terms of readership that Amish America has; but who don’t necessarily chose to reply to an article entry. I mean, Erik probably can personally gauge the actual readership numbers, but its interesting the sheer amount of people who “come out of the wood work”

    Please don’t consider that last paragraph condescending on any level; I do not intend it to be that way.

      I,too, appreciate it when authors respond to comments about their
      writings reviewed on Amish America. I am going to buy and read a copy of Renegade Amish, and already have a couple of Amish friends who want to read my copy when I’m through. I was interested to read in the listing of events planned about the book, that at least a couple have been arranged by Amish people.

    • Shom I love seeing both things too – authors responding and some of our less-often commenters chiming in. Thanks to both Don and all you great readers.

    Hi there Slightly-Handled-Order-Man! This is Donald Kraybill and I’m just checking in to say THANK YOU for saying thank you to me. It certainly does make the content and conversation more exciting when the author responds. Also CONGRATULATIONS to the three winning entries. I hope you enjoy the book.

    Who would have thought, when coming upon/following this blog, that it would include something of a precedent regarding (of all things) HATE CRIMES!

    SO interesting and “current”, besides!

    I’ll be having surgery later this week with a long recovery, and I’ll have a LOT of time to read. I hope to read Renegade Amish!

    Thank you for your contribution in recording Amish life & history “as it happens”, Mr. Kraybill! Good luck with your future endeavors!

      My thoughts and prayers ...

      will be with you Alice Mary as your date for surgery approaches.

      I have been out of pocket and not checking AA much lately. So I guess I didn’t even realize that you were facing this, OR, senility is setting in and I knew, but have forgotten. Regardless, I hope that this is nothing super serious.

      At any rate, please keep us posted on the surgery and the recovery. Good luck on both & on tour reading list, too!

    Thanks for the analysis, it certainly clears things up as to why they decided it was not a hate crime (right or wrong) I couldnt understand why they would decide that based on the brief articles I saw. And congrats to the book winners!
