Having said that, however, I did want to share a "book related event" with you this week that was very exciting for me.
As many of you know I live in Montreal and while this city is absolutely wonderful in so many ways, we are not known at the "book" capitol of the world - in fact, we are not even known as the book capitol of Canada.
So, when author Isabelle Laflèche, author of one of my absolutely favorite books J'adore New York offered to meet me in order to give me a copy of her soon to be released second book J'adore Paris, I jumped at the opportunity.

I rarely "fan" over authors and, for the most part, I am fine with never meeting them or having my books signed by them. To me, the storyline is the most imprtant aspect anyway - but I have been known to make a few exceptions and when I saw that Isabelle signed her book for me, I was psyched.

Meeting someone you admire is always a gamble and, for the most part, I try to shy away from this because I am too afraid to come back disappointed. But, I had to meet Isabelle and I can honestly tell you that she was extremely down to earth, interesting and also gave out a calm and peaceful vibe somehow.
Needless to say, I will be storing this experience as a very positive one.
Here are the links to Isabelle`s books online.....treat yourself.
