I was going to whine about how I spent all day yesterday in the car, and how I should know better than to go anywhere on a holiday weekend because it seems like everyone and the twin they've never met decides they *must* get out of town--BUT.

But yesterday, coming home, my husband and I stopped at two Books-A-Million (I can't help it! I see a bookstore, I must stop!) and they had gotten in a bunch of copies of Bloom for their Teen Book Club, and in both stores, when I asked if I could sign them, everyone was so amazingly nice, and said kind things about the book, and suddenly, I found I wasn't cranky about traffic at all. So thank you Books-A-Million!

I'm going to be in New York this weekend, attending BEA, so if you're there, and see me, come say hi! I'm easy to spot, as I still haven't learned the trick of being cool about getting ARCs and still say things like, "Really? I can have this? YAY!"

I have tons of links to share:
