How I Came To Ring In The New Year With Victoria Dahl

You see, yesterday was the 31st of the month and therefore payday, which means grocery shopping. When we come to the small book section, I usually give it a once-over to see if anyone I "know" is in there. Since Victoria Dahl has a new contemporary romance (official release date Jan 1), this is how it went:

Me: Oooh, honey, check to see if Victoria's there today.
Him: Didn't you say she's not out until tomorrow?
Me: Well yeah, but that doesn't mean she won't be on the shelf. Oooh, look, there she is!
Him: Don't you already have about a million books you're supposed to be reading?
Me: Yes, but I don't have this one. It's Victoria Dahl!
Him: Yes, dear.
Me: Too late, it's already in the cart! You can't put it back!

And since I had to read the whole thing last night in one sitting, this is how I came to ring in the new year with Victoria Dahl. Or, y'know, her newest book, because in spite of how it sounds in our conversation, it wasn't actually her sitting on the shelf in the bookstore. (That probably would have been fun, too...)

  • Books!

    Yes, it's a meme, but it's about books, therefore it's obviously an awesome meme. If a bit long. 1) What author do you own the most books by?…

  • Neil Gaiman

    I totally hung out with Neil Gaiman tonight. And by "hung out with" I mean I was in the bookstore when he visited, did his reading and Q&A, then…

  • I'm gonna guess the bookstore will be packed that day

    Neil Gaiman is coming to town. Dec 15. We will teach him all about cold, I imagine.
