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?
