The Windy City!!

Okay folks, at this moment, my sister and I are on our way to Chicago. Well, Naperville, but it's basically Chicago. Tonight I will be meeting Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr, 3 of my very favorite authors. I cannot wait.

Then Wednesday, my birthday, my sister and I are going to the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium. Or at least we are going to try to cram them both into one day. I think we can do it.

So, I may or may not post tomorrow with news of the book signing. I'm taking a laptop, but it's a fickle and feisty laptop that doesn't always like to work.

In other news, guess what ARC I got at work today?! Any guesses?! (Not that the giant picture won't give it away. Well...here's a hint. It made me do the happiest of happy dances. That's right....Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. My friend was opening the package, which she said was from Scholastic and I was chanting out loud, Catching Fire, Catching Fire, and apparently it worked. So yay!!! I am very excited. So a great book week for me so far!!

I shall return soon with news of authors and books signed.
