So apparently I suck at this whole blogging thing, because I forgot to mention that I will be attending Book Expo America this week! It will be my first time at BEA, so I’m a little nervous, but also very excited! It seems like a great opportunity to meet authors, snag some free books, and (of course) interact with other bloggers. So with that in mind, if you’re going to be there too, please come and say hi! I’ll probably be in line for Elizabeth Wein’s autograph or hanging out with Cary Elwes. 😀
Some of you may know that B.J. Novak, best known for his role as Ryan Howard on “The Office” (U.S. version), has written a book! It’s a collection of short stories called One More Thing, and you should definitely watch the trailer to learn more about it (i.e., be extremely amused):
So he’s on tour promoting the book right now, and last weekend he came to a bookstore in my area! I got my book signed:
And he was gracious enough to pose for pictures with everyone who showed up:
So that was a good day. 🙂 I haven’t read the book yet, but I have sampled a few of the stories, and they’re really funny! Hopefully the rest of the book will live up to my high expectations.
