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. 😀

Oh man, I bet that was a blast! I have a feeling Sandra was thrilled to meet you too.
We did have a lot of fun Kathy!
green with envy, lol I am gl;ad you had a great time!!!
SO much fun!
I haven’t read any of her books…must check her out! What a great event….and here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST
That sounds like such a great evening! Great pictures too, thanks for sharing 🙂
We had a great time 😉
This looks like such a fun night!
That is was 😀
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.
I know nothing about the Count but looks like I will 🙂 They sent two copies – one for giveaway. I have listened to Ready Player One on audio – FANTASTIC! I have always wanted to own the book.
Sounds like fun! Glad you had a great time. 🙂
I did and today I am tired 🙂
We also got to meet Sandra at SIBA and she was someone you just instantly fall in love with. And although you had a blast before meeting with this female miner, I bet you had one with her as well!
I agree Jill, she is so down to earth and easy to talk to. It was really fun for me to be able to introduce Susan to her.
What a fun night you all had!!!
My hubby wanted to know why I didnt get home until after midnight… 😀
It was so lovely to see you again and to see Sandra again. Thanks for supporting her and my bookstore!
Thanks for the heads up Michelle. I will be watching your store for future author events… I had a blast 😀
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!!
Ahhh Sandra, really the pleasure is all ours. Susan and I talked excitedly all the way home about our great evening with you.
I LOVE Sandra Brannan ~ she is such a gifted storyteller and all around neat person ~ I just know you had a blast hanging out with her!
We did at that 😀
