I got the following in e-mail today and it made my day. I think any writer would be totally over the moon to get a letter like this:
I have never been a big fan of reading a lot. Recently I moved with my
wife to Atlanta and needed some escape from the boredom of knowing nothing about my surroundings, and figured I might pick up a book or two and see if I can get into them. i don’t know what drove me to buy your book, but I do know it is the first time I have read a book cover to cover. It is also the first time that i have read the same book multiple times, hoping to catch something I didn’t the first time. To continue with the firsts, I am patiently awaiting the release of the next book in the series 🙂
Thank you for turning me on to reading.

I’d like to nominate this reader for “world’s greatest fan.” Anybody else got a great fan story?
