Random Thoughts for Sure!

It's the night before my trip to New York and I'm stuck in total panic mode.  Do you know how many nightmares I've had over the past week or so?  They've been nonstop and they are driving me crazy. The worst one is that I'm trying to get in line at Borders on Broadway in New York and they won't let me in because I don't have a number.  I can see Lee Child through the window and I can't get through the door.  Richard is pulling me away as I'm sobbing and screaming obscenities at the manager. Later, after I've calmed down, Richard takes me to the Barnes & Noble at Union Square for the evening book signing and the same thing happens. Well, actually, it's a little different.  They have officers waiting for me outside.  I don't even make it to the door before I'm  handcuffed and taken to jail for stalking.  STALKING?  I'm not a stalker, I swear.  I'm really not!  I'm just a beautiful woman from Salt Lake City that fell in love with reading.  Planning my vacations around  a book signing is just the only way I know how to give back to the writing community.  Out of all the things they could be choosing to do, these people write books.  And they write really good ones.  They totally deserve to have their names on my vacation planning list.  It might take me a few years to finally see them all, but this is going to be so much fun for me.  I can take pictures and stand in line for hours.  I can buy books and meet other people that love to read.  I really can't think of a better idea than packing a bag and planning an overnight visit for a book signing.  It truly is the best idea I've ever stumbled upon.  And, I can share every detail with you on this ridiculously lame book blog that I've created. 

Enough of that!  I'm behind on my reading by like 7 months and I'm thinking that somebody just needs to start telling me what to read because I'm never going to be current on reading if I keep straying from my list of books to read.  Having a book blog is hard.  I really need to reorganize it and figure out what it is I'm trying to do with this blog in the first place.  I'll be starting book eleven in the Reacher series this week and I'm working my way through The Great Bridge by David McCullough.  The second book is my historical pick for my trip to New York.  I'm leaving in like 15 hours and I have so much left to do...see ya when I get back and I promise to keep you upated on my adventures on my blog!  Much love-  Kate Dahson :) Yes, I'm using my alter-ego name!!!  If only because I'm headed to New York and the name was given to me first by the Blackdagger Brotherhood.  You want some vampires to love?  Them be it!

I am sure you will be able to see Lee Child and there will be no need to sob. Matter of fact, you should be escorted to the front of the line for singing his praises! Good luck and I'll see you when you get back.
