Author Tours 2009

I love to read, I wouldn't be here if I didn't, but what I also love to do is meet those authors that have enriched my world due to the amazing stories they have written. I have been very lucky in meeting most of those authors that I have adored, part of that luck is due to the area that I live in and the other is the spectacular book stores that I frequent. I have to admit sometimes I will travel a great distance to meet an author that I particularly like. I feel that book signings are a great opportunity to support author's you enjoy and you get to know more about the book, story and characters that you have come to admire.

So...I decided to start this post to give those that are interested a "heads up" on author tours that are coming up in 2009. If anyone has any other information to add, let me know and I will add it to the list :)

And I wish the Harper authors were traveling to the Bay Area. The supernatural summer tour looks amazing.

Ohh drat! *smacks head* I knew I was missing something. I went to her website to find a link, but nothing was posted for a current tour, not even the Kepler event. I will add your event :)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
