Magical Moments with Gayle Forman

Gayle came to A GREAT GOOD PLACE for BOOKS a quaint book store that sold over 100 copies of IF I STAY. Gayle was there to promote the the paperback release of IF I STAY and she gave a presenntation that was a mixture of select reading passages combined with musical selections mentioned in the book. I was left speechless and with a bit teary eyed and I was reminded of why I loved this book. Not only did I get to see Gayle but I also had the pleasure to hang with my friend Amanda, fellow blogger Alicia and 3 other bay area authors Jandy Nelson, Yvonne Prinze and Nina LaCoeur. One of the best bits of the night was Gayle's occasional slips about the sequel novel WHERE SHE WENT (letmetellyouIwantthisbooknow)

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.”
