|leaping AND hopping|
We've finally reached another Friday! I'm breathing a sigh of relief .... I have today off from work and it's not 99 degrees where I live!! I live in the Chicago area, and it's been pretty hot (and 80 degrees inside the library where I work) --- but we had some storms on Thursday which brought our temperature down, and the a/c in the library finally started to work, too --- so now, it's all good. :)
So, anyway -- Friday means it's time to Hop. The Book Blogger Hop this week is being hosted by Lori -- thank you very much, Lori!! As always, the Hop is a great opportunity to visit with bloggers you know, and meet new bloggers.
This week's question is: "Who is the one author you're dying to meet?" Lucky for me, the one author I had been dying to meet, I actually DID meet. I have had a huge author crush on China Mieville for years and I finally had the opportunity to not only hear him speak, but got two of my books signed, as well (at C2E2 in Chicago). I tell you - I wasn't sure if I was going to faint in front of him, but I was able to not only hold it together, but I didn't turn into a babbling idiot when I was in front of him, getting my books signed. And let me say this --- I had a feeling he was cool, just from reading and loving his books.... but he is extremely cool in person -- very, very intelligent. And ... um ..... very good-looking. If he has any flaws, they aren't visible. And if you know of any flaws he has, please do not tell me. I would prefer to just think of him as .... perfect.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone else's stories this Hop. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!!
