Bet You Can't Build Just One

I had no idea how people would react to the book -- and I still for the most part, don't -- but one of the most exciting things to hear from earlier readers has been that LEGO: A Love Story is inspiring a lot of them to build again.

It's like having plenty of candy on hand when you sit down to watch Willy Wonky & The Chocolate Factory, the stomach wants what the stomach wants. While it's too late now, I feel like we should have had a disclaimer on the book, something like:

Warning. You may discover that you enjoy playing with your children's toys more than they do and find yourself stealing them for projects of their own. Your teeth could be slightly sore from trying to separate bricks. And your imagination might get kick-started, which could lead to all sorts of projects that you long ago that you had decided not to attempt.
