Morning Meanderings… A Night With Sandra Brannan


Oh what a night, is what is in my head right now!  My friend and fellow Bookie Susan went with me yesterday afternoon to drive the 2 1/2 hours to Minneapolis to go to a book event at Magers and Quinn Booksellers (also where Michelle from Red Headed Book Child) works.  We arrived around 4:35 pm where we checked out the book store and then Sandra found us. 

The three of us went down the block to a Thai restaurant that was fun and delicious and then we proceeded to talk for the next two and a half hours about books and research and life and well… we had a BLAST!  We then went back to the store for Sandra’s book event where we shared more about her books, the direction they are going – and what might be coming next!  SSSQQQUUUEEEEE!

We were there until about 9:45 pm when we made out way to the parking ramp and started out trek home – but no complaints coming from this chick – we had so much fun – Sandra is so down to earth and so filled with awesomeness – really – if you get a chance to meet her do not hesitate to do so. 



That was a great night! 

As far as books that entered my home this week – it was a mellow week and the top two I purchased last night:

I have to run, I am meeting a friend this morning and then I want to get home to read and chill today – my life explodes back to BUSY tomorrow. 😀

  5. This looks like such a fun night!

  6. I’m really keen to read The Black Count because The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite books, and I had no idea he’d modelled the character on his own father! Have to ask: why do you have two copies?

    I got a copy of Ready Player One recently too, all my blogging friends loved it.

  11. It was a thrill to meet Susan for the first time and to see Sheila again. Bloggers like Sheila and Michelle and independent Booksellers like Magers & Quinn have been the wind at my sail since debuting in 2010. Thank you, thank you!!
