Here's our Thursday meme courtesy of Booking Through Thursday.
I said in August, when we talked about fan mail, that I planned on expanding that to live meetings when the time was right. Well, that time is now!
• Have you ever met one of your favorite authors? Gotten their autograph?
I've never met any of my favorite authors in person...yet. I will be remedying that situation next month when I go to Nora Roberts' book signing. And it's not just a book signing. She's going to be giving a talk too. Woohoo!
• How about an author you felt only so-so about, but got their autograph anyway? Like, say, at a book-signing a friend dragged you to?
I had the opportunity to meet Nicholas Sparks. Turns out, he lives about a mile from my house. Small world, right? Anyway, he was having a book signing at our local mall to promote his newest book. While I've read and enjoyed The Notebook and the sequel, he's by no means a favorite author of mine. I think his books are a little too...sappy for my tastes. Anyway, I was going to go to the book signing just because he was an author but changed my mind at the last minute. I just didn't care enough to go out of my way to meet him.
• How about stumbling across a book signing or reading and being so captivated, you bought the book?
As for the last question, I have to answer no. I've never even seen a book signing at this point in my life. But like I said, that will be changing next month, hehehe! Can you tell that I'm excited??
