I got there shortly after five. I thought I was too early, boy was I wrong. People where already marking their territory in that insanely hot room. I peeled my sweater, coat and scarf off quickly. Just a tip Barnes and Noble, a room that you expect to be filled to capacity shouldn't feel like a sauna!! The long line at the cafe, just for a bottle of water didn't help. But eventually I cooled off and started reading Sing You Home. I'm only 65 pages in, and I'm already hooked. My review pile is a little on the thick side, but I think I have some room for Sing You Home.
This was my first book signing, and I had a great time. The event came complete with music, sung by Jodi Picoult's good friend Ellen Wilber. The lyrics were written by Jodi, and having read the first few chapters it's a nice compliment to the book.
Listen to me wax poetic on my Jodi Picoult collection....(excuse the hat, but it's a bad hair day!!)
I even have a few pictures. I probably should have sat closer, but I was happy just to be there.
