Gadling has named Turn Right one of "The 25 Best Contemporary Travel Books." I think Paul Theroux wrote the other 24. http://www.gadling.com/2012/08/16/the-25-best-contemporary-travel-books/
Looks like the paperback of 'Turn Right' is a hit--it's currently #3 on the Indiebound/NPR nonfiction list and will hit #18 on the New York Times list next week. Thanks, everyone!
