Wow, that was a bit of a lengthy title, if I do say so myself! But what can I say, I have seen a lot of authors lately.
I was downtown at Books of Wonder just yesterday for a signing with three fabulous YA fantasy writers: Sarah Beth Durst, Cinda Williams Chima, and Yvonne Woon. To be brutally honest, I mostly came for Sarah because I actually have not read anything by either Cinda or Yvonne.

SARAH: I love your blog!
TBM: Great! I love your books!
(Not exactly a direct quote, but you get the picture). The whole experience just reminds me of why I love bookish people: the authors are incredibly nice, their dedicated readers are just fantastic, and (most of the time) the booksellers are great as well.
