I am sitting here at my computer writing a review for a book that I loved. Feeling very tired after a long and fun day. I stop and just think for a minute. How awesome is it that not only do I get to read some really awesome books, I have met some of the amazing authors that I have more than falling in love with. I have also met some of the most wonderful people through my love of reading. People who live hundreds of miles from me, but have left a lasting impression on me in way I can’t begin to describe or explain. Some of these wonderful ladies are now friends for life.
This started out to be a Facebook status post that I realized need to be a Blog Post. Today I went to the Turn the Page Bookstore and Cafe for their 19th Anniversary Signing! I believe the total count for the day was over 500 people. WOW! Now I live twenty minutes from the store and this was the first signing I attended there. Some of the Authors attending I have had the pleasure of meeting before, so today was really all about Maya and Nora for me! I got to chat with both ladies for a few minutes and got pics.
As I sit here and write this post, I realize that as a reader I am truly lucky. Not only have I got to met some awesome writers, I now have people who love this as much as I do to share it with. I am a newer reader to the Romance World, just now going on 5 years. This world is where I loose myself so that I don’t pull all my hair out from day to day life. As a reader, there are 3 things that make my day. 1) A new book by an awesome Author coming out that day. 2) Meeting those awesome authors that make you get lost in a world that keeps you coming back for more. 3) Meeting and sharing this passion with other. Today was really all three for me.
I have gotten to met 3 of my 5 top authors. I have made friends for life. I know as long as I keep reading and sharing this passion, I will always have friends for life. I feel like a real lucky person today!
