This year, not so much with the glamorous. I spent most of the day working on copyedits for The Pledge. In my sweatpants.
But here’s what I did do…
My husband got me this as a launch-day gift:
OMG, a NOOK Color!!!! And, yes, I think it might actually be better than a Tiffany bracelet. You know, for a book-whore like me!
And look at the first thing I downloaded (well, after TBF and DESIRES, of course!).
Yeah, it’s US Weekly….cuz that’s how I roll. And seriously, I think I’m in love with this thing!!!
Me: “I don’t know, why?”
Her: “Cause that restaurant you said to meet you at…it’s not really a restaurant anymore. It looks more like a bar.”
That’s how often we get out, apparently. So we decided on the Outback Steakhouse, which was just down the street, I ordered a HUGE dessert, and then we went to sign stock at the local bookstore.
Of course, the kids love watching me sign stock. [end sarcasm font!]
But even better than the NOOK Color, was the fact that when I woke up this morning DESIRES OF THE DEAD was #9 on Barnes & Noble’s Teen Bestseller’s List! Hell yeah, baby!!!!
Seriously, this release day was WAY better than last year. Hands down!
