My Book-ish Treasures!
In honor of Armchair BEA, I have decided to share some of my book-ish treasures with you! What I am about to share with you are some of my most prized possessions, those items that I hold very close to my heart . . . . of course, right after my family!! I have included a little story with each picture, so read on and enjoy!
A Conversation with Khaled Hosseini.
Other authors that I have been lucky to enjoy . . . Ivan Doig (interesting), Patrick McManus (hilarious), Pete Fromm (awesome), Elie Wiesel (inspiring!) . . . and a few that I've overheard just from working in the bookstore include Jan Brett, Chuck Palahniuk, Sherman Alexie. I really wish that I had actually seen these ones instead of just heard!
Despite the many author events I have been to, I still cannot get enough time with them!! I was recently looking at some events that will be offered in my area and I'm really, really hoping that I can go to many of them. As I do, I will be posting them here at Tif Talks Books!
Who would be my dream authors to meet? My faves that I wrote some fan mail to just the other day . . . J.K. Rowling and Stephen King . . . but, there are others I would also add to this list including Suzanne Collins, Shannon & Dean Hale, Janet Halfmann, Sandra Boyton, and so many more!!! Maybe some day . . .
Who do you dream about meeting?

I simply adore autographed books. I must organize them better.ReplyDelete
Great idea to photograph the autograph.
I attended BEA in 2008 (in LA) and got a few books then. And I've also received a few from other authors as review copies.
You have met some AMAZING authors! Elie Wiesel? Khaled Hosseini! Wow!ReplyDelete
I have to admit to being jealous of the signed Ender's Game.ReplyDelete
That's very cool! I would love to meet Lisa Kleypas or Barbara Mertz, or LJ Smith.ReplyDelete
Wow, you are lucky to have such treasures. I'd love to meet and have a book signed my Markus Zusak (The Book Thief).ReplyDelete
Those are some serious treasures. I'm impressed.ReplyDelete
What an amazing collection! So cool that you got to meet so many famous authors! So jealous you met Orson Scott Card! ;)ReplyDelete
I would love to meet Gregory Maguire! Lucky girl. ;)ReplyDelete
Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow . . . I don't organize mine very well! They are really spread out all over the place, but my really special ones get the top shelves!!ReplyDelete
Emily . . . I didn't actually meet Elie Wiesel . . . just listened to him speak! Both were absolutely amazing though!!
carolsnotebook . . . Ender's Game does not get the attention it deserves in my opinion! Amazing!!
heidenkind . . . Sadly, I have never heard of or read any of these authors! :(
Kathleen . . . I just keep hearing amazing things about Zusak and The Book Thief! I really need to give in to the peer pressure on this one!
