Flashback Friday

Good afternoon, bloggers, and Happy Friday!  I hope this month has provided you with great books, writing, and any other goals you’ve pursued.  Since NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) posts have been all over social media, lately, I’ve been thinking about participating.  I haven’t participated since 2014, so we’ll see.  How about you?

In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about this month and how quickly it’s gone by.  I’ve overwhelmed myself with books I’ve wanted to read, which I’m glad I did, anyway.  Speaking of which, I just wanted do my first Flashback Friday post on here.

Vroman’s Bookstore is one of my favorite bookstores.  If you’re in the L.A. area—or plan to visit—check it out, in Pasadena.  In mid-October, my sister and I stopped by to meet Cary Elwes.  He’s famously known for his role as the gorgeous farm boy, Westley, in The Princess Bride.  He was signing copies of his book, As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride.  Luckily, the excitement of meeting him was a good distraction from standing in that long line, in the heat.  Either way, I didn’t mind.

While waiting in line, I took advantage of reading a few pages of this beautiful copy.

Signed to my sister and me.  I love it!

It was just an honor to meet Cary.  He was so polite and charming.  He’d asked us if we were sisters, and then he replied, “That it so sweet.”  It was the highlight of our day.  Meeting an author is always exciting.  Now that I think about it, I believe that’s the second author I’ve met this year.  When my sister and I left the bookstore, we practically swooned like Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz when they would meet celebrities.  It was worth it.

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to this coming month.  I’ll be posting a new book review soon, by the way.  Happy reading!
