I had the awesome opportunity to go to a local Borders and attend a book signing by Jennifer Weiner. If anyone is near her next stops - go and quick!! She was hilarious, entertaining, whitty, and friendly.

She was promoting her new book - Fly Away Home. I took the mom with me and we both bought our books, grabbed a quick bite to eat and then planted ourselves in prime seats. She started off with some hilarious stories, fo
llowed by reading an excerpt from the book and then of course the questions.

We had tickets, so we got our books signed and posed for a picture with her. She really took the time to chat with each and every person.

I could go on and on - all good things. For my first author signing, it was beyond what I thought it could be. I have already started searching for another one for the mom and I.

Jennifer Weiner's book signing of Best Friends Forever was my first author event as well. Isn't she hilarious? She spoke for an hour when I saw her, and I laughed so hard I cried. I felt like I should have paid to see her or something, because I was so entertained.

Saw your comment on the Blog Hop host's site. I've never participated in the Hop, but I read tons of memoirs. Stop by!
