Like Christmas in January
I was super excited this week when, after a pre-order that felt way too long, my copy of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green finally arrived home!
It’s not often that I pre-order books, but of course the excitement over the author’s promise to sign all pre-order copies got to me. As a John Green fan, I just had to have one too!
You see, I’ve had very bad luck in getting my books signed by some of my favorite authors. I got sick on the day Louise Penny signed books at Montreal’s Chapters bookstore. When Brandon Sanderson was here for a signing, I only saw him from afar, leaving, and not matter how fast I ran, he was too far ahead and I missed him.
But this time, though I didn’t get to meet the author, I at least got to have my book signed.
It’s even certified with a fancy sticker :
My copy is signed in green, which is really suiting I believe. Of course, it looks a little like someone was trying to draw a straight line and sneezed at the wrong time, but with so many copies to sign, I didn’t expect anything fancy. Just think of the author’s poor hand!
It’s perfect as it is, isn’t it?
I’ve put Glow aside for now, because it is imperative that I read this one NOW. I’m a very happy reader right now! 🙂
