Shannon Hale Day!

Well, today, despite deadlines and homework and everything else going on there's one thing I would not miss for anything. That's Shannon Hale! She's speaking at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville at seven tonight and I've been so excited. I called the store so early to check on the whole signing line thing that I am literally number 1 & 2! I saw her speak when she was promoting Book of a Thousand Days, and she was dynamic, energetic, funny and engaging, and made sure to spend time with everyone, especially the kids. I've been hoping for a long time that she'd head back my way, and she finally has! Especially in light of the news that she won't be travelling in the nearish future due to a happy event (she's pregnant again, this time with twins!) I wouldn't want to miss this. So the car will be gassed, the oil will be changed, my passenger, little to her knowledge, will be quizzing me on my print production terms for my final next Wednesday and I'll be off to Illinois. But what could make this even better? Well, Kristen from Bookworming in the 21st Century will be there! We've chatted online and are goodreads and facebook buddies, but now I finally get to meet her! I mean, go check out her blog, almost a thousand followers! WOW! Just, wow. Tomorrow should be a great day, and a nice reprieve from homework, despite the terms sheet that will be in my hand.
