Books are bomb. Just admit it. Some of my best memories center around books. Here are my top 5:
1) Finishing Harry Potter – I still remember sitting in a dark basement in Alaska, reading the very end of the series, tears streaming down my face, and a smile breaking through the tears.
2) Getting the 5th Harry Potter book delivered to our home in France the day it was released – we didn’t think we’d get it for a week or two. It was better than Christmas.
3) Meeting Scott Westerfeld, of Uglies fame. I haven’t been to too many signings, and there are authors I would be more excited to meet than Scott Westerfeld, but it was still pretty cool. Plus, he told me there are over 60 ways to spell “Caitlin.” It made me wonder what he spends his time doing . . .
4) The time Patrick Rothfuss emailed me back after I emailed him to tell him I liked his book and that I hoped I could write so beautifully some day.
I lied, you’re only getting 4. Too many choices for the 5th one. What are your top bookish moments?!
