Oh, in this picture below - we have Kristina and two of her critique buddies that are part of a fun blog called Author2Author. :-D

Then, there's me getting a book signed by Richard Peck - who is a fantastic author and very humorous speaker. :)

And last of all, a sneak shot of Jordan Sonnenblick while I was waiting in line. Another fantastic and funny speaker. Probably the only author to pull off a humorous book about a kid with cancer.

Overall, tons of fun!


  1. I really want to read The Line. Have a great week!

  2. I'm an elementary media specialist and just love Peck's work. What a fun time you had. That's so fabulous.

  3. I always expect a long list when I come to your blog and without doubt, you've never turn me down *lol* I'll be eagerly waiting for your review on Magyk =) Have a fantastic reading week ahead. Good day!

  4. You had great all around week!

  5. Isn't Sucks to be Me by Kimberly Pauley just such fun to read. I loved it. :)

  6. You had a great reading week!
    Happy reading!

  7. What a fun event! I also look forward to your reviews of Sunshine and Sucks to be me. We've got them in my library but I haven't read them so am not able to recommend them as well as I'd like

  8. The Puzzle Ring is sounding good. I'm starting to look forward to it's release! It sounds like you had a fantastic time at your breakfast thing! Enjoy your books this week!

  9. Wow -- the breakfast sounds like it was a ton of fun!

  10. Hope you have a great reading week! Check out mine at:

    Have a good one! :D

  11. OO The time, how do you do it. Looking forward to your reviews

  12. You have everything so nicely planned out! Love the pictures and enjoy the week ahead!

  13. Wow looks like you had a great week! It must have been fun getting to meet so many different authors :o)

  14. Wish I was in town to go to the Children's Literature Breakfast - so many great authors!

    I've always been intrigued by Magyk and its series but never picked it up. Looking forward to your review. :)

  15. Looks like you managed to read lots of great books last week. I hope you have another good reading week :)

  16. My youngest daughter has always been a reluctant reader but in elementary school she loved, loved, loved Richard Peck. I'll have to tell her you met him. How very cool. I think she could still pull out a few of his and enjoy them. (She's current NOT enjoying, at least not much, "Wuthering Heights" for Honors English. Oh well.) I personally have just finished the latest John Lescroart, "The Treasure Hunt," which I quite enjoyed. Sometimes I get tired of Dismas Hardy and this book isn't about him. So that was OK with me. For fiction, I'm just starting a book my brother recommended, "Suspicison," by Barbara Rogan, I think is the name. It's from 1999, so it's been around a while. And in an effort to improve myself and my life (we can all use that, can't we?) I'm reading "The Objective is Happiness," by Thomas Wakefield. Great book, incorporating the power of positive thinking and the power of passion and action, and how change can be your friend, and can be fun, too. Though I don't have an ebook (I really want an iPad!) I noticed it does come in that version. I see people with those at the fitness center, and I alwasy think it's a great way to while away time on the exercise bike.

    Happy Monday everyone! Snowstorm last night and I have to finish shoveling.

  17. I really liked Meridian and The Alchemyst. I am planning to read Sucks to Be Me and A Spy in the House. I hope you enjoy your books. Sounds like you had a fun time at the Children's Lit Breakfast.

    Here is what I'm reading.

  18. Can't wait to read the review of Sucks to be Me!

    I don't think I have heard of any of the 3 on your currently reading list though I have heard of The Alchemyst and will be interested to see what you think of it!

  19. Sounds like a wonderful week. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  20. =O The Agency! I'm really looking forward to reading that one. =D And yay, it looks like you had a good time at the Children's Lit Breakfast! =D

  21. I listened to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants on audiobook last year and really liked it. Hope you do, too! Here's my list.

  22. Lots of great titles that I would like to read too. Magyk for one, Raised by Wolves, and the Puzzle Ring. Have a great week.

  23. The breakfast sounds like it was wonderful!

  24. It sounds like you enjoyed the breakfast! The Agency series sounds interesting. I look forward to reading your review.

  25. I'm so jealous! I absolutely love Richard Peck! I hope one day to own every book he has every written.
    Looks like you had a ton of fun last week - congrats!


Leave some love!
