World Book Night - Part 1

Tomorrow is WORLD BOOK NIGHT and I will be handing out 20 copies of
THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak,
one of my favorite books of all time.

Got Books?

Before I could hand out my books, I had to pick them up!  The nice people at WBN America allowed the Givers to choose our pick-up location.  Lucky for me, THE CLINTON BOOK SHOP rolled out the red carpet!  We had snacks, wine, and this amazing cheese platter.  Even my boys behaved themselves (after being bribed with promises of cookies and books) while I mingled...

Rob and Alison

Action Shot!  Thank you, Rob, for putting up with me and my camera!

Why, yes, that IS author MaryAnn McFadden admiring the staff picks!
And, yes, this is me name-dropping!  Authors love their Indies, and Clinton loves Maryann McFadden.  I swear I have bumped into her so many times, I simply thought she was just another really nice neighbor before Rob introduced us! 

Carol Fitzgerald and Alison

The Clinton Book Shop is always full of interesting bookish people.  I made a new book friend, Carol Fitzgerald of THE BOOK REPORTER.  This woman KNOWS her books! I could have talked to her all night.  Instead, I came home to check out her website and got stuck on my computer practically all night.  So many great recommendations, I didn't know where to start.  Check it well as all the affiliate book sites (Reading Group Guides, Teen Reads, Kid Reads, etc.).

Books...and Bo
It's like my dog is saying, "Really, Mom?  More books?  You realize they're all the same, right?"

I will be documenting my World Book Night adventures here, as well as on my Facebook and Twitter pages. 

Check back for more!!!

The reception at Fiction Addiction was last Monday night and it was just so much fun to hang out and talk books with people!
