Except for the traffic that hit just minutes before getting home, which resulted in me needing to get off said highway and drive DOWNTOWN which I HATE to do! And get incredibly lost and my GPS was super slow to keep up with me being lost and giving me the correct direction before I got in the wrong lane...but that's in the past!
Anyway, I drove to Nashville, TN to see Rick Yancey because prior to, I was up for a roadtrip and seeing an author! I met Rick back in Naperville when The Infinite Sea came out, but I felt the need to see him again to get the final book signed for my collection! LOL! Us booknerds need to keep things consistent!
It was a really nice signing too! Parnassus Books was a neat little indie store! They had dogs just walking around! Like other stores with cats, but here there were DOGS! It was funny to because at one point when someone asked Rick a question and just as he was about to answer, one of the dogs started barking! LOL! It was funny!
Turns out I was the one who drove the furthest to see Rick, 5 hours I say!! Funny how that usually ends up happening for me and nearly any signing I go to that's not directly in St. Louis! LOL! I got some cool swag out of it as well!
a SIGNED teaser poster for the movie The 5th Wave!
a cool little backpack with the famous quote on it! Also SIGNED!
And naturally, the best part of me going somewhere is that I always get an extra copy SIGNED for you guys! Also because I couldn't wait to read this one and had to buy a book as well to get in the signing line! Initially I thought it had to be The Last Star, but that wasn't the case! But oh well! I'd rather buy the newest book anyway!
