    Thanks for the post!

    Kristi Yamaguchi is still one of America's most liked athletes. However, she's not sitting back, eating bon-bons and enjoying how much you like her.


    Released at the beginning of the month, (Kristi's book Dream Big, Little Pig) is already No. 2 on the New York Times best-seller list among children's books.

    Thanks for the link and it is always nice to hear about Kristi.

    She seems to be like a fine wine that gets better with age.

    Anyone know about her book tour schedule and where she will be appearing?

    Hi Mathman! I don't really have anything to add. Kristi's been very busy crisscrossing the country on her book tour! This article mentions her being in the top 10 of most likeable athletes:
