Third Place Books!



Third Place Books is a truly amazing place. I had a wonderful time at the reading last night! When we got there, they were hosting Reading with Rover, a program where kids can spend some quality quiet time reading to specially trained dogs. It's such an amazing program!



I got to speak in front of a shelves full of signed first edition books to a great group of people. And, I got to meet blog & Twitter friends Rob, Ana, Lacey, and Mindi, in person!

Lady made me pose with the display of STAY books.


And I got pictures with Mindi (who will be reading at Third Place this fall),


And Rob, who is a fellow green blogger, and an all round crafty guy.

Rob is giving away a signed copy of STAY at his blog, Rob's World!

After the reading we got to hang out in the food court at Third Place, and chat for a bit. It was such a great night, and I am so thankful to everyone who made it out to the reading!

Today, we went hiking at Rattlesnake Ledge. The weather was amazing, and the views were spectacular!



And then we finished up the day with an absolutely incredible dinner at Agua Verde. Seattle is such a wonderful city!

Allison Winn Scotch (who just announced the winners of the amazing book giveaway) is reading at the Pacific Place Barnes & Noble in Seattle on Tuesday. I'm so excited that I will still be in Seattle and I can attend!

Links time!!! And, again, if I left out your link, feel free to give me a nudge. I am so far away from my normal office routine, and it's made me a tad bit flaky. I can't tell you how much I appreciate these posts. It's amazing to hear your thoughts on STAY and how you related to the story. I love it! Thank you! And keep an eye out for a really cool contest coming up very soon!

Very cool! I've always wanted to go to Seattle. And I hope Rattlesnake Ledge did not include any actual rattlesnakes -- eek.
