Thursday's This and That

Nestle and I didn't quite make it back from our walk before the rain started, so we're both a little wet. I wanted to share a few things with you from the week and then go dry off and curl up with THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT. I may finish it tonight if nothing interrupts me.

In a couple weeks I'll be headed out to Anaheim for work. We hold a large convention every year and this year it is in Anaheim. Part of our convention involves an author breakfast. We have four authors attending, one of whom is Gary Moore. You may remember I reviewed his book Playing With the Enemy a short while back. Today I found out I'm fortunate enough to be on the team that will be meeting with the authors on Friday night for dinner and then escorting them to the breakfast the next morning. Very excited about that. I'll try to get some good pictures to share when I return. My sincerest thanks to Cindy Thompson who is in charge and made room for me in this team. She's awesome.

I read this blog post over at Trish's Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin' blog. I would TOTALLY do this. I'm not good at meeting people, but stick me in a room where the expectation is to talk about a mutual interest in books. I'd be in heaven! If anyone hears of something like this going on in my neck of the woods, please give me a holler!

Today I received a newsletter from Mystery Lovers Bookshop in PA. They are now offering FREE SHIPPING on any orders over $10! Awesome! Remember, they specialize in mystery, but they'll order any genre of book for you. Help support an Indy bookseller, get great books and save the shipping charges. I'm already making my list of what I'm going to order! And if you live in the vicinity of Pittsburgh (being a Clevelander it pains me to say that), Mystery Lovers has GREAT author appearances! Make sure you check out their schedule.

That's about it for me tonight. Hope you have a great Friday. Happy Reading!

Anaheim as in Orange County and Disneyland fame?

Great! Where are we going to dinner? I'm starving!

Jen!

Have fun! I just know you will. I always enjoy the time I get to spend with authors. Can't wait to read your blog after the convention is over.

Hi Gary!!! If Cindy hasn't already told you then act really surprised when she does, ok? We're eating at Roy's Restaurant. Looking so forward to meeting you! :)

I just found your blog via a comment you made at the Goodreads Mystery Lovers group. I look forward to following your posts!

Hi Molly,

So glad you stopped by and said "hi." We always love to have folks contributing here! Look forward to talking books with you!

I'm an unbecoming shade of green. But I do hope you have as good a time as I would if I were going...
