So I timed my last post just right! I was planning on finishing Til Grits Do Us Part this evening, and lo and behold I received the first two books in the mail today! Woohoo! Signed by the author and everything! :) I know I've mentioned quite a few times that Jennifer Rogers Spinola and I have been chatting on Facebook and email. So I asked about getting the first two books (Southern Fried Sushi and Like Sweet Potato Pie) from her since I didn't have them on my shelf yet. Also requesting that if she sent them to me, I'd really like it if she'd sign them. She agreed! Actually, she had let me know a couple weeks ago that she was getting ready to mail them out, but I had forgotten. (Holidays can be a little distracting you know.) So I was not expecting them today at all. But what an awesome surprise! And it definitely made my Monday blues a whole lot happier. I'm not especially fond of Monday's anyway. But a Monday after a four day weekend is extra yucky. So TWO signed books made a significant difference in my opinion of this Monday! Ha! :)
I figured all of you lovely blog readers would just love to hear about it and see pics (right?), so here you go.
Y'all probably aren't nearly as excited as I. But I just had to share anyway! :)
