Greetings from Boston, where the Cupcakes Across America has paused, briefly, for regrouping, laundry, and quality time with my children, the big girl and whatsherface.

Today's big news: if you like my books, and you like free things, you can download the Jennifer Weiner iPhone App for free today (Thursday, July 22) in the App Store. It's got tour dates, reading guides, photos from events, and all kinds of exciting links and videos.

I've had so much fun this last week on tour, meeting you guys, sampling cupcakes, enduring three-hour delays in the Dallas airport (okay, that part wasn't fun), and belatedly watching "The Bachelorette" (oh, Frank! How could you?)

A few highlights: the Fort Lauderdale reading, where my Nanna's friend demanded -- demanded! -- to know how the story I'm writing on Redbook ends. "You really want to know?" I asked. "Of course I do," she said serenely. "That way, I won't have to pay five dollars for the magazine."

The Atlanta reading, which was hilarious, and where I met a few former employees of the now-defunct Chapter 11 bookstore chain, which hosted my first-ever signing for GOOD IN BED, which was attended by precisely one person.

I handed out tiaras in Dallas to some lovely ladies who drove six hours to see me, and told the truth about what I'd be doing with my life if I wasn't a writer...and in Boston, I described my top-secret, never-be-made dream film project.

You can read blogger reports on my readings from Dallas, by What Women Writer, from Miami, by blogger Family of One, from Chick Lit Central, and Year of the Bookwormz and The Long Ride Home in DC and author Trish Ryan (hi, Trish!) in Boston.

Here's a great story from the Miami Herald about Susan Isaacs, one of my favorite writers -- I'm quoted!

An interview with Babble.com, about kids, writing, and that terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad plane ride.

My podcast with the fabulous Reading with Robin...my podcast with the erudite Bat Segundo (we talk about Wonder Woman's Lady Gaga pantlessness)...and a great interview with Skirt, where I talk about finding my agent, being a mom, and why ONE DAY is the chickiest chick lit that ever chicked (I liked the book a lot, I'm just a little perplexed by its reception. Also: boy, do those Brits get a lot of vacation!).

The tour resumes on Sunday in Champaign, IL, then rolls on to the Stevenson High School Performing Arts Center in Lincolnshire. Me and Jen Lancaster -- what could be bad?

After that: Denver, San Francisco and LA. Dates, times and locations are here, and I hope to see lots and lots of you on the road.
